Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Las Vegas NV 104 PM PST Fri Nov 27 2020
SYNOPSIS. Gusty north winds will subside over the next 24 hours as high pressure moves into the area. A sunny and a gradual warming trend back to near normal on tap through midweek. No precipitation is expected throughout the week.
DISCUSSION. Analysis this afternoon shows that winds continue to subside across the region due to the exiting upper level low pressure system. This trend will continue into this evening. That being said, the Colorado River Valley from Lake Mead south to Lake Havasu is likely to see elevated wind and wind gusts through tonight and even into tomorrow and Sunday as well.
Beginning tomorrow, a warming trend of sorts sets in through midweek in response to the building of an upper level ridge across the area. There remains some uncertainty as to where and how strong a downstream upper low pressure develops over the intermountain west/Midwest plains. The placement and strength of that low pressure could affect the area with respect to temperatures and winds later in the week. Right now the forecast shows a slight cooling trend later in the week. However, and alternate solutions is that the ridge dominates more and temperatures stay warmer. In either case, no precipitation is expected and our dry trend continues.
FIRE WEATHER. The Red Flag Warning in effect for the Colorado River Valley is set to expire at 4pm PST/5pm MST will be allowed to expire. Winds area on the degrease across the area and evening humidity recoveries will both fall below criteria. Elevated wildfire concerns will remain however, as fuels and RH remain quite low through the period.
AVIATION. For McCarran . Winds expected to fall back to around 10 knots later this afternoon and evening. Light east winds expected on Saturday and Sunday during the afternoon and Southwest at night. Otherwise VFR.
For the rest of southern Nevada, northwest Arizona and southeast California . North winds expected to subside quite this evening and overnight. The one exception is the Colorado River Valley where winds are expected to remain quite elevated at Terminals including KEED, KIP, and KHII.These elevated winds will remain through the weekend.
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.
