SYNOPSIS. The weather through the end of the week will be characterized by above normal temperatures, periods of breezy conditions, and passing mid and high clouds. The next winter weather system will approach late this weekend into early next week with the primary impacts being in the form of increasing chances for rain and higher elevation snow and across Inyo County, the southern Great Basin, and Mohave County. Widespread breezy to windy conditions will be likely Sunday and Monday.
DISCUSSION. Today through Tuesday.
A ridge of high pressure will remain situated over the Southwest U.S. through Saturday. Breezy conditions down the Colorado River Valley will be present Thursday afternoon as sfc gradients tighten. Gusts up to 25 to 30 mph will be possible. On Friday, a weak shortwave will pass across the Great Basin; weakening the ridge briefly in the process with little local impact other than an increase in cloud cover. The ridge strengthens in its wake on Saturday as the next weather system makes its approach on the West Coast.
This incoming system will move through fairly quickly Sunday into Monday allowing for increasing chances for rain and higher elevation snow across portions of the area. First impacted will be the Sierra, northern Inyo County, and the southern Great Basin on Sunday which will then shift eastward to Lincoln, Clark, and Mohave counties on Monday. Current rain and snow totals do not look to be impactful for most. Winds will be more widespread with gusts of 20 to 30 mph likely out of the west/southwest on Sunday shifting the north on Monday. These northerly winds will bring cooler air to the region, allowing temps to drop a few degrees to start the upcoming work week.
AVIATION. For McCarran . North to Northeast winds around 7-8 kts will continue through much of the evening, but are expected to settle to more of a northerly direction after 06z. Wind speeds around 10 kts are expected overnight. Mid clouds will generally dissipate overnight with a FEW150 remaining. However, high clouds are once again forecast to spread into the region with SCT-BKN250 expected by morning.
For the rest of southern Nevada, northwest Arizona and southeast California . Cigs are expected to remain 10k feet or above through Tuesday most areas, but the Owens Valley will continue to see CIGS around 8k feet through tonight. Northwest to north winds over most areas with speeds generally 10 kts or less. However, gusty north winds will impact the Colorado River Valley, specifically IFP and EED through Tuesday. Wind speeds 20-30 kts will be common.
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. 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.
