Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Las Vegas NV 905 PM PDT Sat Apr 13 2024

A weather system moving through the region will produce breezy to windy conditions through Sunday along with cooler temperatures and some light shower activity. Improving conditions are expected Monday as the weather system departs to the area....with temperatures returning to well above normal values by Wednesday onward.

Recent satellite loops showed an impressive looking moisture plume moving across Inyo and Esmeralda counties this evening on the leading edge of the incoming closed low. Wind speeds underperformed somewhat over much of Clark County during the afternoon and early evening, but as they transition from south- southeast components to southwest late this evening and overnight we may see localized gusts over 40 mph in Red Rock Canyon and neighborhoods near the western foothills of the Spring Mountains.
However, the potential for extensive gusts over 40 mph should diminish by 11 pm PDT.

The moisture plume will move north and break up overnight and only limited moisture around the circulation center will move over southern Nevada and nearby areas of San Bernardino and Mohave counties with isolated to scattered showers and possibly a few brief thunderstorms. This trends are covered in going forecast and no immediate changes are needed.

100 PM PDT Sat Apr 13 2024

through Monday night.

Low pressure off the coast of Northern California is slowly developing south and east this afternoon, and will begin to push inland across the Great Basin and Mojave Desert tomorrow. Ahead of this storm system, tightening pressure gradients will encourage another day of gusty south winds, with sporadic gusts of 40-50 mph across much of the region. Strongest winds remain favored across our far western zones, namely the Owens Valley and Esmeralda County, where a few gusts of 50-60 mph will be possible.

Meanwhile, with heights beginning to fall in response to the approaching low pressure system - temperatures today are running 5 to 10 degrees cooler than this point yesterday. Even cooler temperatures are expected Sunday as the trough axis moves overhead, with afternoon highs bottoming out 5 to 10 degrees cooler than the calendar day average. In addition to the cooler temperatures, some light instability driven shower activity is likely as the cold pool aloft moves overhead. These showers will tend to favor the higher terrain of our western and northern zones but may result in some locally gusty winds and a stray lightning strike or two, as they traverse some of the warmer lower desert elevations.

Any shower activity will diminish quickly with the loss of daytime heating Sunday night. The trough axis will shift east by Monday with temperatures returning to near normal values and lingering northwesterly breezes.

Tuesday through Sunday.

A dominant ridge pattern will take hold over the long term period, with temperatures climbing well above normal. There is some variance among model guidance in how strong the ridge building in will be, particularly for Wednesday onward, with the 25th and 75th high temperature percentiles varying by 6 to 8 degrees, but regardless of which scenario plays out, above normal temperatures will prevail.
This will translate to temperatures in the 80s in Las Vegas to potentially approaching 90, with temperatures in the 90s to near 100 in the lower elevations of the Colorado River Valley and around Death Valley.

Meanwhile, aside from passing high clouds, skies should be mostly clear through the long term period as the jet stream lifts well to our north. With temperatures climbing and a deepening mixed layer expected, daily breezes can be expected, particularly in the afternoon and evening.

For Harry Reid...Winds will turn southwest by 05Z.
Speeds will decrease overnight, but occasional gusts to 25kts are still expected at times. Southerly winds return Sunday with gusts to 25kts continuing. No significant cloud cover is forecast through tonight. On Sunday, FEW to SCT clouds, AOA 10kft AGL is expected by afternoon, and a few showers in the vicinity of the field will be possible by 00Z Monday.

For the rest of southern Nevada, northwest Arizona and southeast California...Gusty southerly winds will continue area-wide through this evening, with the strongest winds expected in the Owens Valley including KBIH, where gusts over 40kts are possible. Winds will diminish some overnight, but most regional TAF sites will still experience winds of at least 15kts into Sunday morning. Clouds will increase across the Sierra and the Owens Valley later this afternoon, and a few showers will be possible near KBIH this evening. A few isolated showers are also possible at KBIH and KDAG tomorrow afternoon, while areas farther east will not see shower chances until Sunday evening.

Spotters are encouraged to report any significant weather or impacts according to standard operating procedures.
