Synopsis An exiting weak weather systems will keep
temperatures near normal and bring breezy afternoon winds through
the weekend. Another round of dangerous temperatures are expected
Tuesday through Thursday before temperatures gradually decrease
next weekend. Otherwise, mostly sunny skies and dry conditions
are expected through much of next week.
Update Another quiet evening in store as the so called 'nonsoon'
of 2019 continues. Current forecast has things well in line and no
updates are needed this evening.
Discussion Tonight through next Saturday.
A weak disturbance will be moving through Sunday and Monday. This
will result in breezy afternoons each day, however gusts should not
be as strong as they were today as the disturbance will be shifting
west away from the area. This will also keep temperatures near
normal through Monday.
By Tuesday, ridging starts moving back into the the desert
southwest. Temperatures will be on the increase again Tuesday
through Thursday with high pressure overhead. There still remains
some uncertainty around midweek temperatures as the ece guidance
continues to be cooler than the mex guidance. However, high
confidence that temperatures will be 5 to 10 degrees above normal
and that Wednesday will be the hottest day through the stretch.
Continued with the excessive heat watch without making changes as
there is still some uncertainty there is enough time to hopefully
watch trends and gain confidence before possibly upgrading to a
The ridge remains overhead until Friday when it starts to break down
with another disturbance moving in from the west. The flow should|
become more southerly and weak moisture may push into arizona and
southern nevada. With increasing moisture and ridging breaking down,
temperatures should moderate Friday into the weekend. As far as
storm chances, the long range models all show this moisture return,
however it is modest at best. Moderate confidence in the current
forecast for the second half of the week being dry across most of
the region even with the slight increase in moisture, as forcing
will be lacking and best moisture will remain to our south.
Aviation For mccarran... South southwest winds with gusts of 20 to
25 knots will continue through sunset, then settle down to around 10
knots overnight. Similar winds are expected Sunday, with a brief
period of southeasterly winds possible in the morning. No
operationally significant clouds are expected.
For the rest of southern nevada, northwest arizona and southeast
california... No operationally significant clouds are expected
through the weekend. Southwest winds will gust up to 25 to 30 knots
in exposed desert areas such as kingman in the afternoons, and west
winds will gust up to 25 knots in the barstow area in the evenings.
Otherwise, winds below 20 knots are expected through the weekend.
Fire weather Temperatures will continue to trend down through
the weekend as winds trend up. Elevated winds are expected to
remain below critical thresholds with gusts topping out around 30
mph. Lighter winds are expected beyond Monday along with another
uptick in temperatures Tuesday through Thursday. Dry conditions
are expected to continue through next week with minimum humidities
staying in the single digits through Thursday. &&

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.
