Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Las Vegas NV 150 PM PDT Mon Jun 1 2020

SYNOPSIS. Active weather is expected throughout the week. First, temperatures will increase to near-record readings by Thursday as high pressure builds into the region. Temperatures will cool quickly Friday as a weather system comes ashore. As the system moves inland, shower and thunderstorm chances will increase across the Mojave Desert and southern Great Basin. Winds will increase this weekend as another system begins to influence the region.

SHORT TERM. Tonight through Thursday.

A fairly active weather pattern is expected throughout the forecast period as a couple of weather systems pass through/by the region. These systems will increase showers and isolated thunderstorm chances later this week then kick up the winds over the weekend.

Satellite shows one of those systems spinning a hundreds of miles west of northern Baja. This circulation will eventual become cutoff by tomorrow (Tuesday), camping out in the eastern Pacific until at least Friday. Meanwhile, ridging will build in from the east leading to an increase in temperatures this week. Very hot temperatures will start to pose a risk by Wednesday where heat-illness may impact vulnerable groups (elderly, children, and folks new to the desert). Temperatures will increase a degree or two more by Thursday, jeopardizing a few temperature records (see climate section). Thursday afternoon is expected to be the hottest day this week, with highs reaching 110-115 degrees in the Colorado River valley and 105- 110 in Las Vegas valley. Due to increasing confidence an Excessive Heat Watch has been issued for Wednesday and Thursday.

As the aforementioned ridge builds in, increasing mid-level flow will back to the southeast steering possibly steering a low-grade plume moisture into portions of the Mojave Desert Tuesday/Tuesday night. There is possibility that a weak feature rotating around to offshore cutoff will interact with that little bit a moisture and initiate isolated storms Wednesday afternoon. Chances are low but are not zero. If storms try to convect Wednesday they will likely favor the terrain. That said, PoP and Thunder probs were nudged upward to populate at least a slight chance over the Spring Mountains and Mountain Pass. Showers and thunderstorm chances will also increase in the southern Sierra on Wednesday as forcing increases.

LONG TERM. Friday through Sunday.

The aforementioned cutoff low is expected to make inroads by Friday. There continues to be a slight difference in timing out when the cutoff will be ingested back into the westerlies but both ensembles (GEFS/EPS) are starting to converge on Friday. As the circulation becomes an opened wave, it should track right over the forecast area Friday afternoon/evening, increasing showers/storm chances areawide and cooling down the temps. Additionally, southwesterly winds will strengthen as gradients tighten. Areas prone to southwest winds, like the western Mojave Desert, may see gusts between 40-45 MPH Friday, otherwise expect gusts between 30-35 MPH Friday afternoon

As the shortwave is kicked north and east by Saturday, the next system will begin to influence the region. Wind will be the primary concern with this system as precip should stay north of the southern Great Basin. Expect breezy to gusty winds and near-normal temps through the weekend and into early next week.

CLIMATE. A brief increase in temperatures this week may jeopardize a few maximum temperature records; most records were set by a heat wave back in 2016. Here is the forecast temperature/record high temperature (most recent year of occurrence) for a few notable locations.

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.
