Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Las Vegas NV 800 PM PDT Tue May 26 2020
SYNOPSIS. Temperatures will continue to rise through the week as an unseasonably strong ridge of high pressure moves overhead. Near record high temperatures are expected Wednesday through Friday. A modest decrease in temperatures will occur this weekend along with gustY south winds.
UPDATE. While abundant sunshine and heat dominated most of the region today, intense solar heating and minor mid-level moisture did manage to pop a few thunderstorms along the Sierra Crest this evening. A couple storms drifted off the terrain and into the Bishop vicinity this evening dropping mainly trace amounts of rainfall and some gusty winds to 40 mph. With the loss of daytime heating, storms have weakened though some remnant cirrus continues to drift southeastward across our northern zones.
The current forecast has things pretty well in line and there's no need for any further updates.
DISCUSSION. through next Tuesday.
A building heat wave is on track to impact our region Wednesday through Friday has a ridge amplifies between two deep low pressure systems . one over the southern states and the other over the eastern Pacific. High temps will jump 7-8 degrees by Wednesday afternoon and approach within at least a degrees or two of record levels each day. The Excessive Heat Warning remains in effect and unchanged for those days. The eastern Pacific low is then forecast to lift northeast and swing into central California and northwest Nevada Friday night and Saturday. This will produce increasing south winds Friday afternoon and especially Saturday where gusts over 35 mph will be possible for Esmeralda, central Nye and northern Lincoln counties leading to critical fire weather conditions. This will set the stage for a mean trough to set up along the West Coast Sunday through Tuesday which will bring temperatures back down close to normal. Ensemble models indicate this may develop into a closed low over southern California and southern Nevada late Tuesday into the middle of next week.
CLIMATE. Here are the record high temperatures for primary climate locations Wednesday through Friday.

FIRE WEATHER. A heat wave Wednesday through Friday will be followed by increasing south winds Friday afternoon and especially Saturday where gusts over 35 mph will be possible for Esmeralda, central Nye and northern Lincoln counties leading to critical fire weather conditions.
AVIATION. For McCarran . Winds will generally be less than 10 knots tonight through Wednesday favoring typical southwest components in the evening and overnight then easterly components during the afternoon hours.
For the rest of southern Nevada, northwest Arizona and southeast California . A building area of high pressure will produce generally light winds less than 10 knots across most of the region tonight through Wednesday under a mostly clear sky. The exception will be over the southern Sierra near KBIH where brief thunderstorms late this afternoon and early evening may produce gusty winds over 30 knot.
SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT. Spotters are encouraged to report any significant weather or impacts according to standard operating procedures.

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.
