AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LAS VEGAS NV
200 AM PDT SUN AUG 30 2015

.SYNOPSIS...A BROAD LOW PRESSURE TROUGH MOVING INTO THE GREAT BASIN
AND MOJAVE DESERT REGION WILL BRING DRY SOUTHWEST FLOW WITH COOLER
AND BREEZY CONDITIONS THROUGH THE COMING WEEK AND INTO THE LABOR DAY
WEEKEND. SLIGHT CHANCES FOR THUNDERSTORMS WILL REMAIN IN EASTERN
MOHAVE COUNTY WITH ACTIVITY DECREASING THROUGH TUESDAY.
&&

.SHORT TERM...TONIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY.

A SOUTHWESTERLY FLOW HAS TAKEN HOLD OF THE REGION IN RESPONSE TO
TROUGHING ACROSS THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST AND HIGH PRESSURE SHUNTED
SOUTHWARD INTO NORTHERN MEXICO. THIS HAS RESULTED IN THE MOIST
MONSOONAL FLOW BEING SUBDUED AND PUSHED MORE INTO ARIZONA LEAVING
MOST OF OUR FORECAST AREA HIGH AND DRY FOR THE FORESEEABLE FUTURE.
ONLY CAVEAT TO THAT WILL BE ACROSS EASTERN MOHAVE COUNTY THE NEXT
COUPLE AFTERNOONS WHERE SOME MARGINAL INSTABILITY WILL REMAIN IN
PLACE TO SUPPORT ISOLATED TO SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS MAINLY THE
HIGHER TERRAIN. EARLY MORNING RUNS OF THE HRRR SUPPORT THIS AGAIN
FOR THIS AFTERNOON...PARTICULARLY NORTH OF THE I-40 CORRIDOR IN
EASTERN MOHAVE COUNTY...AND HAVE MAINTAINED POPS FOR THOSE AREAS
THIS AFTERNOON.

ELSEWHERE...SOME PERIODS OF HIGH CLOUDS CAN BE EXPECTED BUT NOTHING
OVERLY SUBSTANCIAL. HIGH TEMPERATURES WILL CREEP DOWNWARD THROUGH
TUESDAY BUT SHOULD REMAIN SLIGHTLY ABOVE NORMAL THROUGH
MONDAY...BEFORE RETURNING TO NEAR NORMAL ON TUESDAY.

.LONG TERM...WEDNESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY.

NUMEROUS SHORTWAVES WILL MOVE THROUGH A LONGWAVE TROUGH WHICH WILL
REMAIN OVER THE PAC NW/NRN ROCKIES DURING MUCH OF THE PERIOD. THIS
WILL KEEP THE SOUTHERN GREAT BASIN/MOJAVE DESERT UNDER A SOUTHWEST
FLOW. LOOK FOR BREEZY TO LOCALLY WINDY AFTERNOON/EVENING HOURS WITH
SLIGHTLY BELOW NORMAL TEMPERATURES.

SOMETHING TO MONITOR WILL BE THE POTENTIAL DEVELOPMENT OF A TROPICAL
SYSTEM IN THE EASTERN PACIFIC. BOTH THE GFS/ECMWF DEVELOP A SYSTEM
WELL SOUTHWEST OF CABO SAN LUCAS WEDNESDAY. THE FEATURE MOVES NORTH
BUT LOOKS TO GET SHEARED APART WEST OF THE BAJA PENINSULA FRIDAY
WITH REMNANT MID LEVEL ENERGY GETTING CAUGHT IN THE SOUTHWEST FLOW
AND MOVING OVER ARIZONA SATURDAY. THE ASSOCIATED MOISTURE BEARS
WATCHING AS SOME OF IT MAY GET PULLED NORTHWARD UP THE COLORADO
RIVER AND INTO WESTERN ARIZONA SATURDAY NIGHT OR SUNDAY.

&&

.AVIATION...FOR MCCARRAN...FAIR WEATHER EXPECTED TODAY WITH PERIODS
OF PASSING HIGH CLOUDS. SOUTHWESTERLY WINDS EXPECTED MOST OF THE DAY
WITH SPEEDS OF 12-20 KTS WITH GUSTS TO 25 KTS. WHILE
UNLIKELY...THERE IS A SMALL POSSIBILITY OF A PERIOD OF SOUTHEAST
WINDS BETWEEN 15Z-18Z. WIND GUSTS WILL DECREASE AFTER SUNSET.

FOR THE REST OF SOUTHERN NEVADA...NORTHWEST ARIZONA...AND SOUTHEAST
CALIFORNIA...FAIR WEATHER EXPECTED WITH ONLY SLIGHT CHANCES FOR
THUNDERSTORMS IN FAR EASTERN MOHAVE COUNTY. ELSEWHERE..JUST PASSING
HIGH CLOUDS EXPECTED WITH AREAS OF SMOKE IN THE OWENS VALLEY AND
NEAR KBIH. BREEZY SOUTHWEST WINDS OF 15-20KT WITH GUSTS TO 30KTS
EXPECTED IN THE AFTERNOON.

&&

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...SPOTTER ACTIVATION WILL NOT BE
NECESSARY. HOWEVER...SPOTTERS ARE ENCOURAGED TO REPORT ANY
SIGNIFICANT WEATHER CONDITIONS ACCORDING TO STANDARD OPERATING
PROCEDURES.

THUNDERSTORMS WERE CONFINED PRIMARILY TO MOHAVE COUNTY THIS

STILL SHOWING SOME MOISTURE REMAINING IN THE MID LEVELS SO WE SHOULD
STILL SEE A FEW CUMULUS CLOUDS THIS AFTERNOON...BUT THE SOUNDINGS
ARE ALSO SHOWING A WARMING LAYER JUST ABOVE THIS MOISTURE SO
ANYTHING THAT DOES DEVELOP SHOULD REMAIN CAPPED AND THUNDERSTORMS
ARE NOT EXPECTED OUTSIDE OF EASTERN MOHAVE COUNTY WHERE SOME SLIGHT

FLOW WILL INCREASE THIS AFTERNOON BRINGING BREEZY CONDITIONS TO MUCH
OF THE AREA WITH WINDY CONDITIONS OVER PORTIONS OF ESMERALDA AND
CENTRAL NYE COUNTIES. WINDS ARE EXPECTED TO REMAIN BELOW ANY
ADVISORY LEVELS. TEMPERATURES TODAY ARE EXPECTED TO TOP OUT AS THE
WARMEST OF THE WEEK WITH READINGS GENERALLY ABOUT 6-8 DEGREES ABOVE

THAT LAS VEGAS WILL FLIRT WITH THAT NUMBER...ESPECIALLY WITH THE
GOOD MIXING EXPECTED. HOWEVER...SINCE ITS BORDERLINE ELECTED NOT TO
ISSUE ANY EXCESSIVE HEAT PRODUCTS.

SLIGHT COOLING WILL TAKE PLACE SUNDAY AS THE TROUGH MOVES CLOSER TO
THE REGION AND HEIGHTS LOWER. WINDS WILL STILL REMAIN GUSTY OVER THE
EASTERN HALF OF THE AREA WITH BREEZY CONDITIONS EXPECTED. WINDS WILL
BE A BIT LIGHTER ACROSS THE WESTERN HALF OF THE AREA. WE WILL

THIS TIME OF YEAR.

.LONG TERM...TUESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY.

HAS THE 2015 MONSOON SEASON COME TO AN END? AT LEAST THROUGH THE
UPCOMING LABOR DAY HOLIDAY WEEKEND IT LOOKS SO. MONSOON MOISTURE

ENCOMPASSING THE GULF OF ALASKA, PAC NW AND WRN CANADA TUESDAY. THE

NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LAS VEGAS NV
140 AM PDT SAT AUG 29 2015

.SYNOPSIS...MOSTLY DRY AND BREEZY CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED INTO EARLY
NEXT WEEK WITH ANY THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY CONFINED TO EASTERN MOHAVE
COUNTY SATURDAY AND SUNDAY AFTERNOON. TEMPERATURES WILL REMAIN
SEVERAL DEGREES ABOVE NORMAL SATURDAY THEN BECOME MORE SEASONAL
SUNDAY AND MONDAY. DRY CONDITIONS ALONG WITH BREEZY AND COOLER
CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED THROUGH THE UPCOMING LABOR DAY WEEKEND.
&&

.SHORT TERM...THROUGH MONDAY NIGHT...

TROUGH PUSHING INTO THE WEST COAST WILL BRING DRIER AND MORE STABLE
CONDITIONS TO MUCH OF THE FORECAST AREA TODAY. FORECASTED SOUNDINGS
STILL SHOWING SOME MOISTURE REMAINING IN THE MID LEVELS SO WE SHOULD
STILL SEE A FEW CUMULUS CLOUDS THIS AFTERNOON...BUT THE SOUNDINGS
ARE ALSO SHOWING A WARMING LAYER JUST ABOVE THIS MOISTURE SO
ANYTHING THAT DOES DEVELOP SHOULD REMAIN CAPPED AND THUNDERSTORMS
ARE NOT EXPECTED OUTSIDE OF EASTERN MOHAVE COUNTY WHERE SOME SLIGHT
INSTABILITY REMAINS. WITH THE APPROACH OF THE TROUGH THE SOUTHWEST
FLOW WILL INCREASE THIS AFTERNOON BRINGING BREEZY CONDITIONS TO MUCH
OF THE AREA WITH WINDY CONDITIONS OVER PORTIONS OF ESMERALDA AND
CENTRAL NYE COUNTIES. WINDS ARE EXPECTED TO REMAIN BELOW ANY
ADVISORY LEVELS. TEMPERATURES TODAY ARE EXPECTED TO TOP OUT AS THE
WARMEST OF THE WEEK WITH READINGS GENERALLY ABOUT 6-8 DEGREES ABOVE
NORMAL. EXCESSIVE HEAT CRITERIA IS CURRENTLY AT 108 DEGREES AND FEEL
THAT LAS VEGAS WILL FLIRT WITH THAT NUMBER...ESPECIALLY WITH THE
GOOD MIXING EXPECTED. HOWEVER...SINCE ITS BORDERLINE ELECTED NOT TO
ISSUE ANY EXCESSIVE HEAT PRODUCTS.

SLIGHT COOLING WILL TAKE PLACE SUNDAY AS THE TROUGH MOVES CLOSER TO
THE REGION AND HEIGHTS LOWER. WINDS WILL STILL REMAIN GUSTY OVER THE
EASTERN HALF OF THE AREA WITH BREEZY CONDITIONS EXPECTED. WINDS WILL
BE A BIT LIGHTER ACROSS THE WESTERN HALF OF THE AREA. WE WILL
PROBABLY SEE A FEW CLOUDS OVER EASTERN MOHAVE COUNTY...BUT
THUNDERSTORMS SHOULD REMAIN EAST OF THE AREA. BY MONDAY THERE SHOULD
BE ENOUGH DRY AIR WITH THE SOUTHWEST FLOW THAT ANY LOW LEVEL
MOISTURE WILL BE PUSHED EAST OF THE AREA. TEMPERATURES WILL ALSO
COOL A FEW MORE DEGREES MONDAY AND TOP OUT VERY CLOSE TO NORMAL FOR
THIS TIME OF YEAR.

.LONG TERM...TUESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY.

HAS THE 2015 MONSOON SEASON COME TO AN END? AT LEAST THROUGH THE
UPCOMING LABOR DAY HOLIDAY WEEKEND IT LOOKS SO. MONSOON MOISTURE
WILL BE SUPPRESS WELL TO OUR SOUTHEAST THANKS TO BROAD TROUGH
ENCOMPASSING THE GULF OF ALASKA, PAC NW AND WRN CANADA TUESDAY. THE
TROUGH IS FORECAST TO AMPLIFY OVER THE WESTERN STATES BY WEEKS END
AS ENERGY DIGS THROUGH THE NORTHERN GREAT BASIN. REGION WILL REMAIN
DRY THROUGH THE PERIOD WITH BREEZY TO LOCALLY WINDY
AFTERNOON/EVENING HOURS. THE ENTIRE PERIOD LOOKS TO HAVE HIGH
TEMPERATURES BETWEEN 3 TO 5 DEGREES BELOW NORMAL. THE DRIER AIR WILL
ALSO ALLOW FOR MORE COMFORTABLE OVERNIGHT LOWS AS WELL.
&&

.AVIATION...FOR MCCARRAN...DIURNAL SOUTHWEST WINDS THROUGH EARLY
MORNING THEN SOUTHWEST WINDS WILL INCREASE BY AFTERNOON WITH SPEEDS
BETWEEN 12-22KTS. FEW CLOUDS 10-12K FEET WITH SCT CLOUDS A0A 20K
FEET THIS AFTERNOON.

FOR THE REST OF SOUTHERN NEVADA...NORTHWEST ARIZONA...AND SOUTHEAST
CALIFORNIA...FEW CLOUDS WILL DEVELOP THIS AFTERNOON WITH ONLY THE
FAR EASTERN PORTIONS OF MOHAVE COUNTY SEEING ANY THUNDERSTORM
CHANCES. SOUTHWEST WINDS WILL INCREASE THIS AFTERNOON WITH SPEEDS
BETWEEN 12-22KTS.
&&

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...SPOTTER ACTIVATION WILL NOT BE
NECESSARY. HOWEVER...SPOTTERS ARE ENCOURAGED TO REPORT ANY
SIGNIFICANT WEATHER CONDITIONS ACCORDING TO STANDARD OPERATING
PROCEDURES.

900 PM PDT THU AUG 27 2015

.SYNOPSIS...A DECREASING THUNDERSTORM TREND IS EXPECTED OVER THE
NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS AS A DRIER SOUTHWEST FLOW IS FORECAST TO
DOMINATE. TEMPERATURES WILL CLIMB BACK TO ABOVE NORMAL READINGS
FRIDAY AND SATURDAY THEN SLIGHTLY COOLER CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED
SUNDAY INTO EARLY NEXT WEEK WITH TROUGHING ALONG THE WEST COAST.
&&

.UPDATE... THINGS HAVE QUIETED DOWN OVER MUCH OF THE AREA WITH THE
EXCEPTION OF SOUTHERN SAN BERNARDINO COUNTY WHERE A STRONG
THUNDERSTORM HAS DEVELOPED WEST OF VIDAL JUNCTION AND ANOTHER TRYING
TO FORM NEAR TWENTYNINE PALMS. THESE AREAS DID NOT HAVE POP IN FOR
THE EVENING AND HAVE UPDATED THE GRIDS TO ADD THOSE. DID LOWER POPS
ELSEWHERE AS SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS HAVE DECREASED.
&&

PREV DISCUSSION
312 PM PDT THU AUG 27 2015

.SHORT TERM...THROUGH SUNDAY NIGHT...

STRONG WESTERLY FLOW ALOFT AND LACK OF ANY WEATHER DISTURBANCE IS
LIMITING A MORE ACTIVE THUNDERSTORM DAY TODAY. THUNDERSTORMS THUS
FAR HAVE BEEN LARGELY CONFINED TO THE EASTERN HALF OF THE FORECAST
AREA AS EXPECTED BUT A FEW ISOLATED CELLS HAVE FORMED A BIT FURTHER
WEST. THE LAS VEGAS VALLEY HASN`T HAD MUCH OF A CHANCE AS EARLY
STORMS THAT FORMED OVER THE SPRING MOUNTAINS AND FURTHER SOUTH HAS
PRODUCED AN EXTENSIVE CLOUD SHIELD THAT COVERED THE VALLEY.

FRIDAY IS EXPECTED TO BRING LESS THUNDERSTORM COVERAGE WITH MOISTURE
BOTH AT THE SURFACE AND THROUGH THE ATMOSPHERIC COLUMN ON THE
DECREASE. MODELS CONTINUE TO SHOW WEAK INSTABILITY OVER THE EASTERN
HALF OF THE AREA BUT DUE TO EXPECTED WARMING ALOFT, STORMS ARE
EXPECTED TO BE LIMITED TO MAINLY THE HIGHER TERRAIN. THE NAM12
FORECAST SOUNDING FOR VEGAS SHOWS THIS WARMER AIR ALOFT WITH A

TO REACH ROUGHLY 103 OR 104 DEGREES TO BREACH THIS CAP LAYER. THE
HIGH TEMPERATURE FORECAST IS 105 DEGREES BUT DEWPOINTS SHOULD BE
DOWN IN THE MID 40S BY THAT TIME.

THE WEEKEND FORECAST REMAINS DRY ALTHOUGH SOME MOISTURE IS FORECAST
TO LINGER IN MOHAVE COUNTY BOTH SATURDAY AND SUNDAY. THERE REMAINS A
POSSIBILITY THAT SLIGHT CHANCES MAY BE ADDED BACK INTO MOHAVE COUNTY
AT SOME POINT IF MODELS CONTINUE TO SHOW THIS. AFTERNOON WINDS WILL
BE NOTICEABLY BREEZY BOTH DAYS WITH WIND SPEEDS OF 10-20 MPH AND
HIGHER GUSTS POSSIBLE ACROSS MUCH OF THE AREA. TEMPERATURES WILL TOP
OUT 4 OR 5 DEGREES ABOVE NORMAL SATURDAY BEFORE RETURNING TO NEAR

WINDS AND TWEAK SKY COVER TO BETTER MATCH NEIGHBORS SKY GRIDS.

A LARGE SCALE TROUGH WILL SET UP ALONG THE WEST COAST AND WILL
PERSIST THROUGH THE LONG TERM. THIS WILL RESULT IN A MAINLY DRY
SOUTHWEST FLOW OVER THE FORECAST AREA WITH TEMPERATURES JUST A

LOWER LEVEL MONSOON MOISTURE WILL LIKELY LINGER JUST EAST OF MOHAVE
COUNTY. THE 00Z RUN OF THE GFS IS KEEPING THAT MONSOON MOISTURE A

BE ANY THUNDERSTORM OUTFLOW WHICH COULD BRING GUSTY WINDS TO THE
TERMINAL FROM VARIOUS DIRECTIONS. FEW-SCT CLOUDS AROUND 10-12K FEET
WITH MOUNTAIN THUNDERSTORMS THROUGH THE AFTERNOON.

FOR THE REST OF SOUTHERN NEVADA...NORTHWEST ARIZONA...AND SOUTHEAST
CALIFORNIA...WINDS GENERALLY UNDER 10 KTS UNLESS INFLUENCED BY
THUNDERSTORM OUTFLOW. ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS WILL CONTINUE THROUGH

900 PM PDT THU AUG 27 2015

.SYNOPSIS...A DECREASING THUNDERSTORM TREND IS EXPECTED OVER THE
NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS AS A DRIER SOUTHWEST FLOW IS FORECAST TO
DOMINATE. TEMPERATURES WILL CLIMB BACK TO ABOVE NORMAL READINGS
FRIDAY AND SATURDAY THEN SLIGHTLY COOLER CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED
SUNDAY INTO EARLY NEXT WEEK WITH TROUGHING ALONG THE WEST COAST.
&&

.UPDATE... THINGS HAVE QUIETED DOWN OVER MUCH OF THE AREA WITH THE
EXCEPTION OF SOUTHERN SAN BERNARDINO COUNTY WHERE A STRONG
THUNDERSTORM HAS DEVELOPED WEST OF VIDAL JUNCTION AND ANOTHER TRYING
TO FORM NEAR TWENTYNINE PALMS. THESE AREAS DID NOT HAVE POP IN FOR
THE EVENING AND HAVE UPDATED THE GRIDS TO ADD THOSE. DID LOWER POPS
ELSEWHERE AS SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS HAVE DECREASED.

312 PM PDT THU AUG 27 2015

.SHORT TERM...THROUGH SUNDAY NIGHT...

STRONG WESTERLY FLOW ALOFT AND LACK OF ANY WEATHER DISTURBANCE IS
LIMITING A MORE ACTIVE THUNDERSTORM DAY TODAY. THUNDERSTORMS THUS
FAR HAVE BEEN LARGELY CONFINED TO THE EASTERN HALF OF THE FORECAST
AREA AS EXPECTED BUT A FEW ISOLATED CELLS HAVE FORMED A BIT FURTHER
WEST. THE LAS VEGAS VALLEY HASN`T HAD MUCH OF A CHANCE AS EARLY
STORMS THAT FORMED OVER THE SPRING MOUNTAINS AND FURTHER SOUTH HAS
PRODUCED AN EXTENSIVE CLOUD SHIELD THAT COVERED THE VALLEY.

FRIDAY IS EXPECTED TO BRING LESS THUNDERSTORM COVERAGE WITH MOISTURE
BOTH AT THE SURFACE AND THROUGH THE ATMOSPHERIC COLUMN ON THE
DECREASE. MODELS CONTINUE TO SHOW WEAK INSTABILITY OVER THE EASTERN
HALF OF THE AREA BUT DUE TO EXPECTED WARMING ALOFT, STORMS ARE
EXPECTED TO BE LIMITED TO MAINLY THE HIGHER TERRAIN. THE NAM12

PRODUCED AN EXTENSIVE CLOUD SHIELD THAT COVERED THE VALLEY.

FRIDAY IS EXPECTED TO BRING LESS THUNDERSTORM COVERAGE WITH MOISTURE
BOTH AT THE SURFACE AND THROUGH THE ATMOSPHERIC COLUMN ON THE
DECREASE. MODELS CONTINUE TO SHOW WEAK INSTABILITY OVER THE EASTERN
HALF OF THE AREA BUT DUE TO EXPECTED WARMING ALOFT, STORMS ARE
EXPECTED TO BE LIMITED TO MAINLY THE HIGHER TERRAIN. THE NAM12
FORECAST SOUNDING FOR VEGAS SHOWS THIS WARMER AIR ALOFT WITH A
CAPPING INVERSION BETWEEN 600-500MB. SURFACE TEMPERATURES WOULD NEED
TO REACH ROUGHLY 103 OR 104 DEGREES TO BREACH THIS CAP LAYER. THE
HIGH TEMPERATURE FORECAST IS 105 DEGREES BUT DEWPOINTS SHOULD BE
DOWN IN THE MID 40S BY THAT TIME.

THE WEEKEND FORECAST REMAINS DRY ALTHOUGH SOME MOISTURE IS FORECAST
TO LINGER IN MOHAVE COUNTY BOTH SATURDAY AND SUNDAY. THERE REMAINS A
POSSIBILITY THAT SLIGHT CHANCES MAY BE ADDED BACK INTO MOHAVE COUNTY
AT SOME POINT IF MODELS CONTINUE TO SHOW THIS. AFTERNOON WINDS WILL
BE NOTICEABLY BREEZY BOTH DAYS WITH WIND SPEEDS OF 10-20 MPH AND
HIGHER GUSTS POSSIBLE ACROSS MUCH OF THE AREA. TEMPERATURES WILL TOP
OUT 4 OR 5 DEGREES ABOVE NORMAL SATURDAY BEFORE RETURNING TO NEAR
NORMAL SUNDAY.

.LONG TERM...MONDAY THROUGH THURSDAY.

THE ONLY CHANGES MADE TO THE EXTENDED WHERE TO INCREASE AFTERNOON
WINDS AND TWEAK SKY COVER TO BETTER MATCH NEIGHBORS SKY GRIDS.
OTHERWISE THE PREVIOUS GRIDDED FORECAST AND DISCUSSION BELOW HOLDS.

A LARGE SCALE TROUGH WILL SET UP ALONG THE WEST COAST AND WILL
PERSIST THROUGH THE LONG TERM. THIS WILL RESULT IN A MAINLY DRY
SOUTHWEST FLOW OVER THE FORECAST AREA WITH TEMPERATURES JUST A
LITTLE ABOVE NORMAL. THERE WILL BE SOME HIGH CLOUDS AT TIMES BUT
LOWER LEVEL MONSOON MOISTURE WILL LIKELY LINGER JUST EAST OF MOHAVE
COUNTY. THE 00Z RUN OF THE GFS IS KEEPING THAT MONSOON MOISTURE A
BIT FARTHER WEST...LAPPING AT EASTERN PORTIONS OF MOHAVE COUNTY BUT
THE OTHER MODELS KEEP IT EAST SO I DID NOT ADD ANY THUNDERSTORM
CHANCES BUT THAT TREND WILL NEED TO BE MONITORED.
&&

.AVIATION...FOR MCCARRAN...MAINLY LIGHT AND VARIABLE WINDS UNDER 8
KTS ARE EXPECTED THROUGH THE EARLY EVENING HOURS THEN EVENTUALLY
SHIFTING AROUND TO THE SOUTHWEST AFTER SUNSET. THE EXCEPTION WOULD
BE ANY THUNDERSTORM OUTFLOW WHICH COULD BRING GUSTY WINDS TO THE
TERMINAL FROM VARIOUS DIRECTIONS. FEW-SCT CLOUDS AROUND 10-12K FEET
WITH MOUNTAIN THUNDERSTORMS THROUGH THE AFTERNOON.

FOR THE REST OF SOUTHERN NEVADA...NORTHWEST ARIZONA...AND SOUTHEAST
CALIFORNIA...WINDS GENERALLY UNDER 10 KTS UNLESS INFLUENCED BY
THUNDERSTORM OUTFLOW. ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS WILL CONTINUE THROUGH
THE EARLY EVENING OVER MOHAVE COUNTY AND THE HIGHER TERRAIN OF
CLARK, EASTERN SAN BERNARDINO AND LINCOLN COUNTIES. CIGS DOWN TO 8K
FEET ARE POSSIBLE IN AREAS OF THUNDERSTORMS OTHERWISE FEW-SCT 10-12K
FEET CAN BE EXPECTED.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...SPOTTERS ARE ENCOURAGED TO REPORT
ANY SIGNIFICANT WEATHER CONDITIONS ACCORDING TO STANDARD OPERATING
PROCEDURES. &&

AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LAS VEGAS NV
958 AM PDT THU AUG 27 2015

.SYNOPSIS...THUNDERSTORM CHANCES ARE EXPECTED TO DECREASE OVER THE
NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS AS A DRIER SOUTHWEST FLOW INCREASES OVER THE
AREA. THIS WILL ALLOW TEMPERATURES TO CLIMB TO ABOVE NORMAL READINGS
THROUGH THE WEEKEND. SLIGHTLY COOLER CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED EARLY
NEXT WEEK AS A STORM SYSTEM MOVES INTO THE WEST COAST.
&&

.UPDATE...NO CHANGES TO THE FORECAST THIS MORNING. SURFACE OBS SHOW
DRIER SURFACE CONDITIONS OVER THE WESTERN CWA WITH THE RICHER
MOISTURE HANGING TOUGH ACROSS THE EASTERN AREAS WHERE WE ARE
CURRENTLY FORECASTING THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY FOR THIS AFTERNOON AND
EVENING. THE MORNING LAS VEGAS SOUNDING INDICATED A COUPLE OF CAPS
ALOFT BUT WITH PLENTY OF SUNSHINE TODAY, IT WILL ALLOW GOOD SURFACE
HEATING AND THIS INHIBITION SHOULD BE OVERCOME BY EARLY AFTERNOON.
&&

.AVIATION...FOR MCCARRAN...NORTHEAST WINDS WILL TURN MORE EASTERLY
BY 18Z WITH SPEEDS AROUND 7-9KTS. THESE EASTERLY WINDS WILL PERSIST
THROUGH MUCH OF THE AFTERNOON AND EVENTUALLY SHIFT TO THE SOUTHWEST
AFTER SUNSET. FEW-SCT CLOUDS AROUND 10-12K FEET WITH ISOLATED
THUNDERSTORMS POSSIBLE OVER THE SPRING MOUNTAINS WITH BETTER
COVERAGE AFFECTING THE MORMON MESA AND PEACH SPRINGS APPROACH
CORRIDORS.

FOR THE REST OF SOUTHERN NEVADA...NORTHWEST ARIZONA...AND SOUTHEAST
CALIFORNIA...NORTHEAST WINDS WILL PERSIST THIS MORNING OVER CLARK
AND MOHAVE COUNTIES WITH MOST AREAS SEEING NORTHEAST TO EAST WINDS
AROUND 10KTS BY LATE MORNING AND AFTERNOON. THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE
POSSIBLE THIS AFTERNOON OVER MOHAVE COUNTY AND THE HIGHER TERRAIN OF
CLARK AND EASTERN SAN BERNARDINO COUNTIES WITH CIGS POSSIBLY DOWN TO
8K FEET. OTHERWISE FEW-SCT 10-12K FEET EXPECTED.
&&

.PREVIOUS DISCUSSION...230 AM PDT...

.SHORT TERM...THROUGH SATURDAY NIGHT...

ITS BEEN A FAIRLY ACTIVE NIGHT ACROSS LINCOLN COUNTY AS
THUNDERSTORMS HAVE REMAINED FAIRLY PERSISTENT...ALTHOUGH IT LOOKS
LIKE THINGS ARE STARTING TO QUIET DOWN AS OF 230 AM. THESE STORMS
HAVE PUT DOWN A COUPLE OF OUTFLOW BOUNDARIES THAT WORKED THROUGH
CLARK COUNTY AND HAVE SHIFTED WINDS TO THE NORTHEAST OVER MUCH OF
THE AREA. THERE WERE A FEW SHOWERS THAT WORKED AS FAR SOUTH AS
NORTHERN CLARK COUNTY...BUT QUICKLY DIED WITH THE LACK OF ANY REAL
SUPPORT. PW VALUES ARE DOWN OVER MOST OF THE AREA FROM 24 HOURS
AGO...BUT ENOUGH MOISTURE AND INSTABILITY WILL ALLOW FOR AT LEAST
ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS TO DEVELOP ONCE AGAIN OVER MAINLY MOHAVE AND
THE HIGHER TERRAIN OF EASTERN SAN BERNARDINO AND CLARK COUNTIES.
AFTERNOON HEATING WILL BE THE MAIN TRIGGER FOR ANY STORMS TO
DEVELOP. A TROUGH DIGGING OFF THE WEST COAST WILL HELP INCREASE THE
SOUTHWEST FLOW OVER THE AREA FRIDAY. STILL THINK THAT ENOUGH
MOISTURE WILL RESIDE OVER THE FAR EASTERN AREAS OF THE CWA...BUT
COVERAGE SHOULD BE LESS THAN THURSDAY. SOUTHWEST FLOW WILL INCREASE
SATURDAY AND IS LIKELY TO PUSH ANY RESIDUAL MOISTURE EAST OF THE
AREA LEAVING THE CWA DRY. WITH THE DRIER AIR TEMPERATURES WILL
INCREASE OVER THE NEXT FEW DAYS WITH ABOVE NORMAL READINGS EXPECTED
THROUGH THE WEEKEND.

.LONG TERM...SUNDAY THROUGH THURSDAY.

A LARGE SCALE TROUGH WILL SET UP ALONG THE WEST COAST AND WILL
PERSIST THROUGH THE LONG TERM. THIS WILL RESULT IN A MAINLY DRY
SOUTHWEST FLOW OVER THE FORECAST AREA WITH TEMPERATURES JUST A
LITTLE ABOVE NORMAL. THERE WILL BE SOME HIGH CLOUDS AT TIMES BUT
