Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Las Vegas NV 924 AM PST Thu Mar 4 2021

SYNOPSIS. Low pressure has exited the region leaving clear skies and sunny conditions. Temperatures will warm several degrees Friday, then a storm system passing by to the north Saturday will bring chances for rain and snow to portions of Inyo county and gusty winds to the Mojave Desert. Cooler and unsettled weather is expected for much of next week.

SHORT TERM. Current forecast appears on track and no updates needed. Little in the way of major changes are anticiptaed for the afternoon update as well. This mean that temperature trends today will be a mixed bag, with highs expected to be slightly warmer than yesterday in the western CWA, similar to yesterday in the central portions, and cooler than yesterday in the eastern portions. Expect plenty of sunshine and warmer temperatures Friday under high pressure, with the most substantial warming in the eastern CWA.

LONG TERM. Saturday through Wednesday.

Increasing winds are expected on Saturday as another quick hitting shortwave buzzes through the area. Models have been showing the shortwave moving through the southern Great Basin, so expecting this should be the area of strongest winds. Ensemble data shows at least some chances for impactful winds over 40MPH in Esmeralda, Nye, and Lincoln counties, though low chances. Confidence in exact details is still lacking as there are still differences in the strength of the shortwave and how strong winds will get Saturday afternoon. General breezes 20 to 30 MPH look likely for much of the area, with higher gusts possible anywhere north of I-15.

Low confidence in the forecast for Sunday into next week. Unsettled weather looks likely at times with broad troughing and multiple systems moving through the region, however very little agreement between models on timing and strength of any of these systems. Monday has a decent chance to be see increasing winds as models have some consistency with a deep trough impacting the West Coast, through there are model difference in the strength of the system and the subsequent low level jet. Will need to watch for wind impacts on Monday into Tuesday. Otherwise, precipitation and gusty winds are possible at times . but picking when, where, intensities, and resulting impacts is unknown at this time. Temperatures will depend on the details of the incoming systems, but near normal to slightly below normal looks more likely for next week than above normal temperatures.

AVIATION. For McCarran . Light, diurnal winds expected through Friday under mostly clear skies.

For the rest of southern Nevada, northwest Arizona and southeast California . Light, diurnal winds expected across much of the region under mostly clear skies today. Light northerly breezes will be possible Friday at KIFP with gusts to around 20-25 knots.

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