Synopsis Dry and tranquil weather today will give way to
increasing winds and moderate cooling Thursday and Friday and again
late Saturday and Sunday as fast moving systems sweep across the
Only change this morning was some minor changes to the MAX t grid
today due to hourly trends either slow to warm in the southern cwa
or too quick in the north. This is likely due to the incoming high
clouds from the west. Really no model was capturing these trends
particularly well so made some manual adjustments for key locations
based off the latest hourly observations and re-computed the diurnal
hourly temperatures. Otherwise, forecast is in good shape this
Discussion Today through next Wednesday.
Today brings another day of quiet weather before increasing winds
develop Thursday as the base of a trough and associated dry cold
front sweeps over southern nevada and surrounding states Thursday
and Thursday night. Most of the our region will see southwest wind
gusts in the 25 to 30 mph range Thursday afternoon, but the western
mojave desert around barstow could see a brief period of gusts
around 40 mph late Thursday afternoon and early evening. Gusty west
winds will also develop Thursday over the east slopes of the
southern sierra leading to some downslope potential, but gusts
penetrating into the owens valley are expected to be less than 40
mph. These areas will be the main ones to watch for any potential
wind headlines. North winds gusting generally 25 to 30 mph will
spread down through southern nevada Thursday night and early Friday
morning then speeds will drop off for most areas except the lower
colorado river valley from laughlin-bullhead city to lake havasu
where north gusts 25 to 30 mph should persist Friday afternoon.
Another trough is forecast to slide across northeast nevada into|
utah Saturday afternoon and Saturday night. The more northern track
of this system will produce west to northwest winds 25 to 35 mph
primarily near central nevada Saturday afternoon then north winds 15
to 25 mph will push down through southern nevada Saturday night and
Sunday morning. North winds will again be more enhanced down the
colorado river valley Sunday with gusts 25 to 35 mph possible from
lake mohave to lake havasu.
The period from Monday through next Wednesday looks dry and tranquil
with a warming trend according to model ensembles as a mean ridge
builds over our region. Temperatures will dip 8-10 degrees this
weekend then should rebound about that much by the middle of next
Aviation For mccarran... No significant wind or clouds are
expected to impact the terminal over the next 24 hours. A benign
weather pattern will allow for traditional diurnal wind patterns in
the valley through tonight. Light and variable winds are expected to
generally favor an east to southeast direction today and a southwest
direction tonight. Weather pattern changes will bring stronger winds
into the las vegas valley on Thursday.
For the rest of southern nevada, northwest arizona and southeast
california... For the rest of southern nevada, southwest arizona and
southeast california... No significant weather impacts are expected
for all terminals over the next 24 hours with primarily light winds
expected at all sites except kbih where winds are expected to gust
20-25 knots out of the southeast this afternoon.

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.
