AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LAS VEGAS NV
929 AM PDT WED OCT 1 2014

.SYNOPSIS...A COLD FRONT WILL CONTINUE MOVING SOUTH THROUGH THE AREA
TODAY. THIS WILL LEAD TO LOCALLY GUSTY NORTH WINDS TODAY THROUGH
THURSDAY WITH SLIGHTLY COOLER TEMPERATURES. HIGH PRESSURE BUILDING
OVERHEAD THIS WEEKEND WILL PRODUCE DRY AND WARM WEATHER.
&&

.UPDATE...COLD FRONT MOVED THROUGH LAS VEGAS THIS MORNING WITH NORTH
TO NORTHEAST BREEZES BEHIND IT. FORECAST LOOKS ON TRACK SO NO UPDATE
PLANNED AT THIS TIME.
&&

.PREV DISCUSSION...
246 AM PDT WED OCT 1 2014

.SHORT TERM...SATELLITE LOOP SHOWED A BAND OF CLOUDS ASSOCIATED WITH
A SHORTWAVE AND COLD FRONT ACROSS MUCH OF LINCOLN COUNTY BACK INTO
CENTRAL NYE COUNTY EARLY THIS MORNING. THE SHORTWAVE WILL BE EXITING
EAST INTO UTAH THIS MORNING WITH A SLIGHT CHANCE OF A SHOWER ALONG
THE UTAH BORDER IN LINCOLN COUNTY EARLY TODAY. THE CLOUD BAND WILL
LINGER EARLY TODAY ACROSS MAINLY LINCOLN COUNTY BEFORE EXITING BY
LATE MORNING. OTHERWISE SKIES WILL BE SUNNY ACROSS THE CWA TODAY.
MEANWHILE...THE COLD FRONT WILL CONTINUE TO PUSH SOUTH THROUGH THE
AREA TODAY WITH SOME LOCALLY GUSTY NORTH WINDS AT TIMES. AN UPPER
RIDGE WILL BE BUILDING OVER THE AREA THURSDAY AND FRIDAY WITH
TEMPERATURES WARMING TO SEVERAL DEGREES ABOVE NORMAL BY FRIDAY. SOME
NORTHERLY BREEZES WILL LINGER THURSDAY...PARTICULARLY DOWN THE
COLORADO RIVER VALLEY FROM BULLHEAD CITY TO NEEDLES. WINDS SPEEDS
SHOULD REMAIN BELOW ADVISORY LEVELS.

.LONG TERM...SATURDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY...HIGH PRESSURE WILL BE IN
PLACE THROUGH EARLY NEXT WEEK. THIS WILL LEAD TO MOSTLY CLEAR SKIES
AND TEMPERATURES RUNNING A TAD ABOVE NORMAL FOR EARLY OCTOBER. THERE
IS SOME INDICATION THAT THE RIDGE WILL FLATTEN SOMEWHAT BY LATE
TUESDAY OR WEDNESDAY ALLOWING A DISORGANIZED DISTURBANCE TO MEANDER
THROUGH THE AREA. RIGHT NOW THERE DOESN`T APPEAR TO BE MUCH IN THE
WAY OF LOW/MID LEVEL MOISTURE WITH THIS SYSTEM SO WE MAY ESCAPE WITH
LITTLE MORE THAN SOME HIGH CLOUDS MID WEEK.

.AVIATION...FOR MCCARRAN...NORTHERLY WINDS WILL DEVELOP BEHIND A
COLD FRONT IN THE NORTHWEST VALLEY AROUND 12Z WEDNESDAY THEN
OVERSPREAD THE REST OF THE VALLEY BY 16Z WEDNESDAY. SPEEDS WILL

829 PM PDT SUN SEP 28 2014

.SYNOPSIS...AN UPPER LOW WILL SLOWLY SHIFT EAST ACROSS THE GREAT
BASIN TONIGHT AND MONDAY. SCATTERED SHOWERS AND ISOLATED
THUNDERSTORMS ARE POSSIBLE UNDER THIS LOW AND WILL MOSTLY AFFECT
INYO COUNTY...SOUTHERN NEVADA AND NORTHWEST ARIZONA. MUCH COOLER
TEMPERATURES CAN BE EXPECTED AGAIN MONDAY. THE REGION WILL LIE UNDER
A DRY NORTHWEST FLOW FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE WEEK WITH TEMPERATURES
WARMING BACK TO SEASONAL NORMALS.
&&

.UPDATE...UPPER LOW IS STILL WOBBLING OVER NEVADA WITH BEST FORCING
COMING AROUND THE WESTERN SEMICIRCLE OVER INYO COUNTY WHERE MOST
SHOWERS WERE OCCURRING THIS EVENING. RAISED POPS OVER INYO AND
SOUTHERN NYE COUNTIES OVERNIGHT TO ACCOUNT FOR THE BETTER FORCING
PUSHING EAST.
&&

.PREV DISCUSSION...
238 PM PDT SUN SEP 28 2014

.SHORT TERM...THROUGH WEDNESDAY NIGHT...
SCATTERED SHOWERS HAVE DEVELOPED ACROSS THE GREAT BASIN UNDER CLOSED
UPPER LOW. ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS HAVE MOSTLY BEEN CONFINED TO
NORTHERN NEVADA AND UTAH. SYSTEM WILL HAVE ONE LAST GLANCING BLOW
FOR THE SOUTHERN GREAT BASIN AND MOJAVE DESERT TONIGHT. SHORTWAVE
OVER WESTERN NEVADA AND THE CENTRAL SIERRA PROGGED TO SLIDE
SOUTHEAST INTO INYO COUNTY THIS EVENING, BEFORE CROSSING SOUTHERN
NEVADA AND NORTHWEST ARIZONA LATE TONIGHT. MODELS IN GOOD AGREEMENT
CLUSTERING QPF OVER THE NORTHERN TWO-THIRDS OF INYO COUNTY THIS
EVENING. MUCH OF THE QPF DISSIPATES BEFORE REACHING CLARK COUNTY AND
MOHAVE COUNTY BUT CAN NOT RULE OUT A CHANCE OF SHOWERS FOR THE
MOUNTAINS WITH A SLIGHT CHANCE OF LIGHT RAIN SHOWERS OR SPRINKLES IN
THE VALLEYS AFTER MIDNIGHT. BELIEVE MUCH OF THE SHOWER ACTIVITY
SHOULD WIND DOWN BY DAYBREAK BUT HAVE KEPT IN A SLIGHT CHANCE FOR
THE HIGHER TERRAIN OF NORTHERN MOHAVE COUNTY MONDAY MORNING. LIKELY
SEE A DUSTING OF SNOW DOWN TO 9000 OR 9500 FEET IN THE SPRING MTNS
TONIGHT.

TROUGH WILL SLOWLY MOVE EAST INTO UTAH/WESTERN COLORADO MONDAY
AFTERNOON. HOWEVER, THERE MAY JUST BE ENOUGH COLD AIR ALOFT AND
MOISTURE FOR THE MENTION OF A SLIGHT CHANCE OF SHOWERS FOR THE
HIGHER TERRAIN OF NORTHERN LINCOLN COUNTY. HIGH TEMPERATURES WILL BE
5 TO 8 DEGREES BELOW NORMAL TOMORROW.

MONDAY NIGHT THROUGH WEDNESDAY NIGHT, THE REGION WILL LIE UNDER A
DRY NORTHWEST FLOW WITH RIDGING OFF THE WEST COAST. A FAST MOVING
SHORTWAVE WILL CLIP NORTHEAST NEVADA AND NORTHERN UTAH TUESDAY
NIGHT/WEDNESDAY. THE ASSOCIATED DRY COLD FRONT WILL SLIDE
SOUTH THROUGH THE MOJAVE DESERT WEDNESDAY NIGHT. AREAS THAT FAVOR
NORTH WINDS MAY EXPERIENCE GUSTS UP OF 20-25 MPH AT TIMES.
