Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Las Vegas NV 924 AM PDT Wed Jun 19 2024

Temperatures are expected to recover to near normal today and then return to well above normal Thursday into next week. Excessively hot conditions are possible as early as the weekend in some of our valley locations. The first round of showers and thunderstorms associated with the monsoon season is possible by Friday and continuing through Monday as a shallow surge of moisture reaches into the lower deserts and northwest Arizona. Shower and thunderstorm chances are mainly in Mohave County but could extend westward into parts of southern Nevada and southeast California over the weekend.

No update necessary this morning with forecast in fine shape. The area of high clouds which moved through our skies overnight has just exited Lincoln County leaving behind sunny skies across the entire area. Temperatures slated to warm back closer to normal today, while south-southwest winds of 5-15 mph, gusts to 20 mph develop this afternoon.

Guidance since yesterday is trending more 'bullish' with our first taste of monsoon moisture which will have an impact on the weekend high temperatures and an expansion in storm chances further west into southern Nevada and eastern California. More on that this afternoon.

126 AM PDT Wed Jun 19 2024

To get some perspective on just how much relief from the heat there was in Las Vegas yesterday, the high temperature of 91 degrees was 10 degrees cooler then Monday, 9 degrees below the normal high of 100, and 24 degrees below the record high of 115 set way back in 1940. Certainly, a welcome change of pace from the sweltering heat.

The weather pattern keeps our area under a mean trough today which despite intense sunshine, will keep temperatures slightly below normal. In addition to the abundant sunshine, we are expecting afternoon breezes across the region today.

Thursday through next Wednesday.

A building ridge in the central US is expected to build back south and west late this week through the weekend. This will bring warmer temperatures back into the forecast. Temperatures should climb a few degrees each day Thursday through Sunday, then Sunday onward the daily high temperature spread shows little variation from Sunday through the beginning of next week. HeatRisk by the end of the weekend climbs into the 'Moderate" category for most areas, and into the "Major" or "Extreme" categories for the weekend into early next week for most valley locations such as Death Valley, Las Vegas, the lower Colorado River Valley, and southern Mohave County. While there may be a few degree fluctuations each day, above normal temperatures and increased risk for heat related impacts are likely this weekend into next week.

A decaying tropical cyclone that migrated from the Gulf of Mexico to off the coast of Mexico could get pushed into the southwest US.
Probabilities for over 1 inch PWATs increase in the southern Colorado River Valley and southern Mohave County, with over 50% probabilities noted in that region this weekend on both the GEFS and ECMWF ENS. So, increasing confidence there will be a surge of moisture Thursday through Monday. However, instability currently looks limited as probabilities for CAPE over 500 J/Kg through the same period are little to none. Friday afternoon could have some help in the form of extra forcing from the lingering trough that will still be influencing our weather pattern as the transition to ridging will be slow. This could provide enough forcing for some precipitation to develop. Otherwise, it's too early to say what kind of impacts this moisture surge may result in and if showers or thunderstorms will develop. If something were to develop, Mohave County would have the best chance most of the period with potentially precipitation a bit further north and west into portions of the Colorado River Valley and eastern San Bernardino County when the moisture will be most robust. The low levels of the atmosphere remain very dry, so showers and thunderstorms that form are likely to encounter substantial evaporation before precipitation reaches the ground. The more likely scenario will be dry lightning, which could increase chances of wildfire starts in the area. Will continue to monitor this moisture flux through the week and update the forecast accordingly.

For Harry Reid...Winds will follow a diurnal pattern today and tonight. Winds start off this morning out of the southwest with speeds of less than 10 knots. Later this morning, they will shift to the northeast, possibly taking a southeasterly direction at times. Winds turn to the southwest and increase to over 10 knots in the late afternoon. Occasional gusts to around 18 knots cannot be ruled out and some uncertainty remains in the exact timing of the wind shift. Speeds should fall to less than 10 knots overnight. Skies will be mostly clear once high clouds exit this morning.

For the rest of southern Nevada, northwest Arizona and southeast California...A diurnal wind pattern is expected across the area today and tonight. Speeds should remain under 10 knots for most of the forecast period, but increase to over 10 knots in the afternoon becoming gusty at times, especially along the Colorado River Valley.
KDAG will experience gusty westerly winds this morning, followed by a lull in the afternoon before picking up out of the west again in the evening. Mostly clear skies are expected today besides occasional high clouds.

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