Synopsis A building area of high pressure along the west coast
will provide dry weather and warmer temperatures the rest of the
week. However, expect periods of north winds at times, especially
within the colorado river valley.

Short term Through Saturday night.

Large scale features of interest this morning continue to be the
narrow, amplified ridge off the west coast and deep, cold longwave
trough encompassing the rest of the lower 48. A fast moving
disturbance embedded in the northwest flow is presently moving
southeast through the eastern great basin. A slightly stronger
disturbance will race southeast across the great basin Friday night.

With the passage of each disturbance, north winds will be enhanced
especially down the colorado river valley from lake mohave south to
lake havasu city. Based on this forecast don't see the need to issue
any wind products as wind speeds fall shy of advisory criteria.

Later shifts will need to monitor any model fluctuations which could
lead to higher winds and possible products. Skies will continue to
remain mostly clear with temps at or slightly above normal.

Long term Sunday through Thursday
quiet and dry weather will persist through the long term as the
region sits between a ridge over the west coast and multiple troughs
that dig south out of the pacific nw. Much of our sensible weather
will be determined by how far east the ridge axis sets up, which is
difficult to pinpoint at this time. Latest model trends have a
stronger ridge that is further east, and therefore any shortwaves
will be further north and east than previous model runs. This would
result in less winds and warmer temperatures. The time period to
watch for any potential wind issues would be Monday and Tuesday as a
wave dives south and could bring breezy north winds to the area.

With a stronger ridge however, backed off winds from previous
forecast as the better energy and pressure gradient has been shoved
northward. Otherwise, light winds are expected through next week.

Increased temperatures from the previous forecast after Monday as
the ridge being further east means a warm airmass will be in place.

Temperatures will start above normal for the beginning of next week
before slipping slightly normal or slightly above normal by
Wednesday and Thursday.

Aviation For mccarran... Winds will develop from the north-
northeast around 10 knots later this morning and will continue much

For the rest of southern nevada, northwest arizona and southeast
california... Sustained north-northeast winds 5-15 knots will spread
down over the region today... With gusts up to 30 knots along the
colorado river valley from IFP to hii much of the day.VFR
conditions will continue today and Friday.

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.
