Synopsis Sunny and dry conditions expected to continue through
the weekend and into the start of the work week with the exception
of some periods of high clouds. Breezy winds will pick up each
afternoon this weekend before dying down around sunset, though a
ridge of high pressure is expected to set up next week that will
bring back an increase temperatures and calm winds. Models continue
to hint at a return of a monsoon set up midweek that could result in
an increase in moisture and storm chances.
Discussion Today through next Friday.
Thanks to a pattern shift and a northwesterly flow aloft, our brief
reprieve of scorching temperatures has arrived. Temperatures this
weekend will hover within a few degrees above seasonal averages
as opposed to the 5-10 degrees above average we experienced this
past week. Sunny skies will prevail with the exception of some
periods of high clouds toward the latter half of the weekend.
The breezy afternoon conditions that we experienced today,
particularly in northern mohave county, will continue but trend
downward going into the work week as the aforementioned shortwave
trough to our north moves eastward out of the region.
The start-to-mid work week is where the forecast gets interesting
and confidence drops a bit. An area of high pressure moves inland
and over our area. This will initially help bump temperatures back
into heat-headline territory with temperatures 5-8 degrees above
seasonal averages. We will continue to monitor and discuss product
issuance as the start of the work week nears. Through the week,
this area of high pressure will slowly push eastward, resembling a
monsoon-set-up. This is where forecast uncertainty enters.
Ensemble model guidance indicates a push of moisture into our area
as a result of this pattern. Forecast pwats flirt with the 0.75"
mark across our whole area by mid-week with peak values along the
colorado river valley in excess of 1". According to NAM forecast|
soundings, this moisture looks to remain in the low levels of the
atmosphere. With no signs of instability nor lifting mechanisms,
this moisture is unlikely to result in anything in the way of
precipitation. However, according to long-range models, the
monsoonal high over arizona and new mexico looks to stay in place
for the end of the work week and into next weekend that could
result in an increase in deeper moisture flux - and thus - non-zero
precipitation chances for the region.
Fire weather Temperatures will dip slightly this weekend,
though remain within a couple degrees above seasonal averages
before increasing again next week. Additionally, southerly winds
again today near 20-25 mph possible, particularly in the higher
elevations of mohave county, though anticipated to be lighter than
yesterday and will remain below critical thresholds. Minimum rh
values expected to remain in the single digits with the exception
of far southeastern california and northwestern arizona that will
see a slight moisture increase with minimum rh values in the teens
through the weekend.
Aviation For mccarran... Similar conditions to yesterday are
expected today. South southeast winds are expected to increase and
become breezy after noon, with gust potential as high as 25 kts at
times. By around sunset, winds will become less gusty and shift to
become predominantly southwest. Skies should remain mostly clear and
no other impacts expected.
For the rest of southern nevada, northwest arizona and southeast
california... South to southwest winds will once again increase to
around 10-25 kts after 18z today over most areas. Mostly clear with
only a few high clouds through the period.

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.
