Synopsis Extreme heat is likely through at least midweek under
a strong ridge of high pressure. There are signs of moisture
moving into the area by midweek, which may limit heat impacts. Dry
conditions are expected to persist through the week along with
another potential period of hot temperatures next weekend.

Update Another quiet evening is in store to round out the
weekend. Gusts have ceased with a few spots still seeing sustained
winds of 10 to 15 mph this evening. High clouds will continue to
stream northward across the area tonight through much of the day
tomorrow with temperatures reaching several degrees above normal.

Dew points in the mid 50 to even low 60s remain in the colorado
river valley and adjacent areas, but with little upper level
support, should continue to have little noticable effect during the
day other than folks feeling more of the humidity in the air.

Previous discussion 233 pm pdt Sun aug 25 2019

Discussion Heat will be the main concern through midweek. Under
the influence of high pressure temperatures will to near record
temperatures Monday through Wednesday. Lower valleys across southern
nevada (i.E. Pahrump valley, las vegas valley) will see highs
between 106-110 on Tuesday and Wednesday; the colorado river is
expected to see highs between 110-115 over the same period. Moisture
could be the limiting factor. That is, if enough moisture funnels
in, temperatures would be moderated and are unlikely to reach full
heating potential. All that said, heat risk and impacts will elevate
this week, so an excessive heat watch has been issued for the
aforementioned areas covering Tuesday and Wednesday.

Other than heat impacts, there will be a slight chance for isolated
thunderstorms across the southern sierra Tuesday afternoon evening
as remnants energy from ivo ejects into northern california.

Elsewhere, chances for showers storms is very low. The best chances
for southern nevada will be Tuesday Wednesday over the higher
terrain, though this will depend on the depth of moisture spread
into our area and the degree of warmth aloft. Most areas will likely
see only increased cumulus due to the increased moisture and
continued capping.

The ridge dominating the southwest will begin to shift westward
later in the week, centering the dome of high pressure over socal.

This pattern would favor hot and dry conditions as dry west to
southwest flow is aimed across the mojave desert and southern great
basin. This may end up as one of the hottest august on record.&&

Fire weather Continued hot temperatures and lighter winds
expected through the week under high pressure influence.

Exceptionally dry conditions will continue across the southern great
basin, while moisture funneled into the mojave desert will keep
humidities slightly above critical. Uncertainty exists in deeper
moisture surges and thunderstorm potential for much of the upcoming
week.

Aviation For mccarran... Light and variable winds will return in
the morning, eventually becoming easterly in the afternoon hours.

Due to the light nature of the winds in the afternoon, a high amount
of variability is expected, likely between 020-160 degrees but
generally below 8 kts. Skies should remain mostly clear with minimal
impacts expected.

For the rest of southern nevada, northwest arizona and southeast
california... Minimal impacts expected again for the 06z TAF period.

Some initial wind gustiness tonight at kdag will gradually diminish
by the morning hours becoming light through much of the day
tomorrow. Otherwise, no significant aviation concerns expected.

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.
