Synopsis Plenty of cloudiness in our skies through Wednesday, but
little precipitation expected as an area of low pressure stays over
arizona and utah. Gradually moderating temperatures are expected the
rest of the week. Another weak area of low pressure may produce
another round of showers Sunday into early next week.
Short term Through Thursday night.
West of the colorado river valley temperatures running some 4-6
degrees warmer than yesterday. However, along and east of the
colorado river temperatures are about the same as yesterday, thanks
to the considerable cloudiness across mohave county. Any measurable
precipitation so far looks to be along and east of a line from the
grand canyon south rim to prescott.
Upper low over southwest arizona progged to steadily shift northward
across arizona tonight, eventually ending up over southern utah
Wednesday. Extensive swath of cloudiness north of the low will
continue to be thrown westward across mohave county and into
southern nevada and southeast california through Wednesday. The
cloudiness will finally shift east on Thursday as the upper low
weakens and shifts east across southern utah. As for any
precipitation. Still only expecting a few showers over the higher
terrain and far eastern areas of mohave county tonight and
Wednesday. Any precipitation will be light due to lack of lift and
a shallow layer of drier air near the surface.
Temperatures will continue their gradual recovery from
Monday's chill with values closer to normal Thursday.
Long term Friday through Tuesday.
The key difference in the long range guidance tonight vs this time
yesterday is subtle differences in the evolution of the closed low
Friday and into the weekend. A more progressive shortwave out of
canada will serve to cut off the low center from the overall flow|
pattern and trap it under a developing ridge axis over the western
conus by the weekend. As the remnant low shifts westward towards
southern california and eventually off-shore, it should again pull
moisture northward and into the region Saturday night and Sunday.
Went ahead and raised pops for this time frame in collaboration with
neighbors. QPF values still do not look too substantial at this
point per wpc guidance.
Temperature-wise, gradual warming through the week is expected, with
highs in the las vegas valley reaching the low 80s by the weekend.
Looking at the CPC 8-14 day temperature outlook, a fairly strong
signal for above average temperatures looks to be on the horizon as
the next stout upper low approaches the pacific northwest early next
Aviation For mccarran... Northeast wind 10-15kts, gusts to 20 kts
will continue for the rest of the afternoon. Winds should decrease
this evening and could favor a northwest direction with speeds less
than 10 kts. A shift from due north to east of north is expected
between 17z-19z Wednesday, as wind speeds could get as high as 12
kts. Considerable mid high clouds expected to stick around tonight
before starting to decrease Wednesday afternoon.
For the rest of southern nevada, northwest arizona and southeast
california... Considerable mid high clouds expected to stick around
mohave county tonight before starting to decrease Wednesday
afternoon. North winds will continue through the next 24 hours for
the colorado river valley terminals, but considerably less gusty on

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
