Synopsis Warm conditions expected through Saturday with high
temperatures climbing well above normal. Increasingly gusty
conditions are expected Saturday afternoon ahead of a disturbance
moving through. Cooler conditions are expected Sunday before
temperatures rebound early next week.
Update Temperatures on the rise the next few days, even as the
ridge of high pressure shifts east. Some high clouds associated with
closed low west of san diego will overspread the area tonight. The
forecast is in good shape. No update.
Discussion Through next Wednesday.
Ridge of high pressure will continue to build over the region
today with temperatures climbing several degrees above normal this
afternoon. Warming trend will continue into Friday with highs
peaking near 90 in las vegas and eclipsing 100 degrees in death
A weakening shortwave trough will push in by Saturday with heights
falling slightly. However, despite the height falls, gusty
southwest winds will overspread the region resulting in a well
mixed boundary layer with afternoon temperatures Saturday staying
elevated, and very similar to Fridays highs. Winds across parts of
the mojave desert as well as the downslope regions of the spring
mountains and sierra may creep into wind advisory territory and
some wind headlines may be needed down the road.
Stronger cooling will arrive Sunday behind a weak cold frontal
passage, but temperatures will remain slightly above average. High
pressure ridging will build back in early next week with highs
rebounding once again.

These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. 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.
