Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Las Vegas NV 809 PM PDT Tue Jul 7 2020

SYNOPSIS. Winds will settle down this evening for much of southeast California and southern Nevada, but will linger through Wednesday in Mohave County, where increased wildfire danger remains a concern. Temperatures will begin to rise Thursday, reaching dangerous levels over the weekend. Thunderstorm chances remain very small through the weekend.

UPDATE. Winds quickly decreasing with sunset. Only a few localized areas of gusts over 20 mph evident across the region, so allowed the Red Flag Warning and Lake Wind Advisory to expire on schedule. Otherwise, all quiet across the region tonight with no updates needed this evening.

DISCUSSION. Clear, breezy, and seasonably hot today across our area. The winds have been marginal for the Red Flag Warning, especially in southern Nevada where only a few stations in each zone have been hitting criteria. That said, since a few sites are still hitting, will not cancel the Warning early. Conditions tomorrow still look marginal in Mohave County, but a few of the typically windier stations should hit. After tomorrow, high pressure building in from the southeast will push temperatures up a few degrees a day from Thursday through Saturday. This will likely (one caveat - more on that in a moment) lead to dangerous heat, so the Excessive Heat Watch for Saturday through Monday still looks good. The one caveat is that the models disagree on how much monsoonal moisture might be able to seep north into the area by the weekend. As expected, the model runs which are dry have hotter temperatures, while the runs which show moisture making it in have lower temperatures along with more cloud cover and chances for (mostly dry) thunderstorms. More solutions fall into the dry camp, so the forecast leans that way as well. Will continue to watch this in case the trend shifts toward more moisture.

FIRE WEATHER. Critically dry conditions with poor overnight recoveries will continue this week. Winds will settle down for much of the region this evening, but will likely linger in Mohave County through Wednesday, resulting in increased wildfire danger. Temperatures will increase beginning Thursday, peaking over the weekend.

AVIATION. For McCarran . Elevated, southwesterly winds will continue through this evening. Speeds for this period will remain at around 20 knots gusting 25-30 knots. A light veil of smoke can be seen around the valley today but it is not expected to create any vsby restrictions at the terminal. Winds will come down slightly this evening with gusts lingering through around 05z-07z. There is a chance that winds stay up between 10-15 knots along with gusts to 20 knots all the way through tomorrow morning but confidence is lower in the latter overnight scenario. Breezy, southwest winds are expected again on Wednesday at slightly lower speeds.

For the rest of southern Nevada, northwest Arizona and southeast California . Breezy, southwest winds will continue through this evening. Wind speeds will remain between 15-25 knots with gusts of 25-35 knots for most areas. Winds will lessen overnight with some spots remaining up around 10-15 knots with gusts up to 20 knots through tomorrow morning. On Wednesday, most areas will continue to see breezy conditions at speeds slightly lower than today's. The exception will be across Mohave County where winds will be comparable to those seen this afternoon.

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.
