Synopsis A strong ridge of high pressure will result in mostly
clear skies and hot temperatures through the middle of the week.
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.
Discussion Monday through Wednesday.
Heat will be the primary focus through at least midweek with strong
high pressure forecast over the southwest. Temperatures and heat
risk values indicate a moderate to high risk for heat impacts today
through Wednesday... And potentially beyond. In the las vegas valley
today, the high temperature is forecast to be within 1 degree of the
record and within a couple degrees of the record Tuesday and
Wednesday. Although heat risk values of 3 associated with moderate
heat impacts are just beginning to show today, near record heat in
the las vegas valley and increasing temperatures in death valley
national park, southern nye county including pahrump and along the
colorado river valley have prompted an upgrade of the excessive heat
watch to a warning beginning this afternoon. The warning includes
death valley national park where moderate to high heat risk impacts
are localized today but expand and become more widespread Tuesday
and Wednesday. The area is expected to remain dry except for a small
chance of showers in the northern portion of inyo county Wednesday
afternoon associated with a shortwave moving north along the
Thursday through Sunday.
Strong high pressure is forecast to remain in place through Saturday
before shifting east on Sunday. Heat risk decreases Thursday but
increases again across portions of clark county and the colorado
river valley Friday and especially Saturday. High temperatures in
las vegas change little in this period as compared to earlier in the
week generally ranging from 106-108 however low temperatures are
forecast to be lower. Some consideration for an excessive heat
product may be needed for portions of the area late in the week|
although conditions could be less favorable. There is some potential
for shower thunderstorm activity reaching into mohave county Sunday
afternoon with high pressure shifting to the four corners area and
an inverted trough forecast to be south of the forecast area.
Fire weather Hot temperatures and relatively light wind
conditions are expected through the week under high pressure.
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
Forecast highs will be within 1 to 3 degrees of record values for
las vegas and death valley today through Wednesday. The following
are the official daily record high temperatures for august 26-28:
tdy 8 26 Tue 8 27 Wed 8 28
las vegas 109 (2001) 110 (2017) 110 (2017)
death valley 122 (2017) 124 (1924) 124 (2011)
Aviation For mccarran... Light and variable winds this morning
will become easterly in the afternoon and should persist until
around sunset with sustained speeds generally 5-8 kts. A typical
light south-southwest component can be expected after sunset through
the overnight hours. Skies will remain mostly clear with only some
thin cirrus times.
For the rest of southern nevada, northwest arizona and southeast
california... Winds generally less than 10 knots can be expected
across the region with only sct-bkn cirrus over southeast california
and clear skies elsewhere.

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.
