Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Las Vegas NV 248 AM PDT Thu Jul 9 2020

SYNOPSIS. An area of high pressure continues to build to our southeast, bringing dangerous conditions to our region through the weekend. Afternoon breezes will persist with minimal cloud cover and very low dew points.

SHORT TERM. Today through Friday.

An area of high pressure continues to build to our southeast, working to increase temperatures across the Desert Southwest. Afternoon high temperatures on Wednesday were right around average, though, due to the ridge, temperatures this afternoon and Friday will be on the uptick with temperatures 2-4 and 5-8 degrees above seasonal averages, respectively. Clear skies and afternoon breezes will continue to finish off the work week, though as mid-level moisture begins to wrap around the high pressure and funnel up the Colorado River Valley, a slight increase in cloud cover can be expected in far southeastern California and far northeastern Arizona.

LONG TERM. Saturday through next Thursday.

The focus for the long term continues to be strong ridge building into the southwest US and attendant heat impacts as well as potential moisture pushes.

Over the weekend, a strong ridge of high pressure will build into New Mexico and drive the weather pattern for much of the region. Much of the CWA will sit on the periphery of the high, such that rising heights will also be coupled with pressure gradients, yielding efficient mixing and near maximum warming. Highs will quickly shoot above Excessive Heat criteria and peak near records. As is usual, when the region bakes, a low-level thermal low develops, which begins the pipeline of moisture transport up the Colorado River Valley, which most guidance agrees commences this weekend. However, PWATs of three-quarters to one inch, which would do the trick for a Spring airmass, do little to develop instability or support thunderstorms in a summertime airmass. Thus, believe the forecast will remain dry over the upcoming week, but there may be a chance for some dry thunderstorms if a stray shortwave or two could steepen lapse rates and focus lift.

The plague of troughs so far this season continues by midweek next week, with another upper-level trough moving through the prairie provinces and northern Rockies, displacing the upper-level ridge significantly eastward. This should end the heatwave and cool temperatures by a few degrees as heights fall. Beyond that, significant disagreement among guidance. Ensemble solutions range from an opportunity to open the door for deeper monsoonal moisture (least likely), or continued dry, southwest flow with an elongated ridge axis.

FIRE WEATHER. Critically dry conditions with afternoon breezes with poor overnight recoveries expected to continue for the foreseeable future. Temperatures will increase for the remainder of the work week and through the weekend to dangerous levels.

In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
