Synopsis Dry and seasonable conditions with decreasing high
clouds today will give way to an incoming pacific system that will
bring snow to the sierra beginning Wednesday afternoon and a chance
for light showers over much of the region on thanksgiving day. Dry
conditions will return by Friday but gusty north winds will likely
develop over most of the area Saturday.
Short term Through Thursday night.
A quick but generally low impact change in the weather is still on
the horizon as a fast moving pacific system moves into the southern
sierra late Wednesday and across nevada on thanksgiving day.
Considerable high clouds over the region will decrease today as the
circulation near northern baja moves to the east just south of the
arizona border. The main focus of attention is the cold trough that
could be seen on satellite loops that originated in the gulf of
alaska and was digging over the eastern pacific near 35n 140w. This
will move into the west coast Wednesday afternoon bringing a tap of
moisture into the southern sierra through early Thursday morning.
Elevations above 7000 feet in the east slopes of the sierra will
likely see several inches of snow and a winter storm watch was
issued to highlight this potential. The sierra will intercept most
of the moisture and only light showers will be left for the rest of
central and southern nevada and nearby areas on thanksgiving day.
The trough axis is forecast to quickly move across the region and be
along the eastern nevada border by 21z Thursday and any lingering
showers will be over lincoln and northern mohave counties by then. A
dry northwest flow will develop by Thursday evening and overnight
for most of the region temps only dropping a few degrees.|
Long term Friday through Tuesday.
Friday morning, an atmospheric river feature will push into northern
california. Models continue to trend north of our area with regard
to the moisture associated with the ar. As a result, precip chances
are low and confined to the sierra and northern parts of lincoln
county Friday and into Friday night. Saturday, chances diminish for
the sierra, but models dip a bit farther south into lincoln county
as the day progresses. Not much in the way of accumulation is
expected with total QPF amounts Friday and Saturday under 0.05
inches. Rain chances dissipate during Saturday's overnight hours,
resulting in a dry rest of the weekend and sunny start to the work
week. Temperatures will trend at or above seasonal average
throughout the forecast period.
Aviation For mccarran... Light and diurnal winds expected to
continue through Wednesday with wind speeds under 6 knots. Ceilings
will continue to fall through the day today where they will be as
low as 15k feet before clearing out during the overnight hours.
For the rest of southern nevada, northwest arizona and southeast
california... Light and diurnal winds expected for much of the region
through the day today with the exception of kifp and keed who will
see north winds up to 10-15 mph through the forecast period. Kifp
can expect gusts as high as 25 mph at times. Ceilings will lower to
around 15k feet today before clearing out during the overnight hours.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors.

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.
