Synopsis Mostly sunny skies and dry conditions are
likely through the week. Winds will be on the decrease but
temperatures will be on the increase through the middle of the week.
After that, temperatures will retreat only a few degrees through the
Update Quiet weather is expected this afternoon. Current satellite
shows a small area of patchy high cirrus, however it is much less
dense and put together than yesterdays cirrostratus band. This makes
sense as the moisture profiles on area soundings were drier in the
upper levels compared to yesterday. Decreased cloud cover for this
afternoon in central nevada and south-central california for these
reasons. Just dont think we will get enough cirrus to constitute a
significant cloud layer. Otherwise, did not make major changes from
the previous forecast. It will be a few degrees warmer than
yesterday with breezy winds this afternoon, however winds will be
lighter than yesterday afternoon.
Aviation For mccarran... Southeast winds generally 7-10 knots
will persist before becoming more southerly around 20z with speeds 8-
12 kts and gusts 15-20 kts. The gusts will die off around sunset,
though south-southwesterly winds 8-12 kts will persist through the
overnight hours. No operationally significant cloud cover expected.
For the rest of southern nevada, northwest arizona and southeast
california... Light diurnal winds this morning will give way to south-
southwesterly winds 8-12 kts and gusts 15-20 kts... This will be the
story today for all of the TAF sites with the exception of kdag that
can expect west-northwesterly winds 10-15 kts through the taf
period. No operationally significant cloud cover expected.

Discussion Through Sunday.
Another area of high clouds is in the process of developing over
southern inyo county this morning. Href high cloud cover data shows
this area will lift north across inyo, nye, esmeralda and lincoln
counties throughout the day. Otherwise, this august 'nonsoon'
continues with dry conditions and above normal temperatures today. A
few ongoing wildfires around the region may produce localized spots
of smoke or haze.
Tuesday-Thursday: area will experience another round of heat. Strong
mid-level ridge to our east is progged to shift west during the
middle of the week. High temperatures will be some 6-8 degrees above
normal on Wednesday which will be threatening some records. Little
relief into Thursday with our excessive heat warning running through
Friday-Sunday: little relief expected over the weekend with
expansive area of high pressure staying intact over northern
california and the great basin. Temperatures will be about 5 degrees
above normal. Models still showing a tropical cyclone developing in
the eastern pacific later this week. Models continue to show this
cyclone moving northwest to near the baja peninsula this weekend.
However, the orientation of the ridge over the great basin looks to
inhibit any significant surge of moisture into our area at this
Fire weather Dry conditions with above normal temperatures will
continue through the week. Minimum humidities will likely continue
to drop into the single digits in the afternoons with poor recovery
overnight. There will be a shallow increase in low level moisture
into southeast california and southern mohave county Friday and
beyond leading to better humidity recovery.
Aviation For mccarran... Light south-southwesterly winds will
persist through the early morning hours before adopting a more
southerly component around 21z with speeds 8-12 kts and gusts 15-20
kts. The gusts will die off around sunset, though south-
southwesterly winds 8-12 kts will persist through the overnight
hours. No operationally significant cloud cover expected.
For the rest of southern nevada, northwest arizona and southeast
california... Light and diurnal winds through the early morning hours
with south-southwesterly winds 8-12 kts and gusts 15-20 kts... This
will be the story today for all of the TAF sites with the exception
of kdag that can expect west-northwesterly winds 10-15 kts through
the TAF period. No operationally significant cloud cover expected.

I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted. If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. 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.
