AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LAS VEGAS NV
245 AM PDT MON SEP 1 2014

.SYNOPSIS...WARM AND DRY CONDITIONS WILL CONTINUE THROUGH THE WEEK.
MONSOON MOISTURE SEEPING BACK INTO NORTHWEST ARIZONA WILL BRING A
RETURNED CHANCE OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS FOR THE LATTER HALF OF
THE UPCOMING WEEKEND.
&&

.SHORT TERM /THROUGH WEDNESDAY NIGHT/...
THE SYNOPTIC PATTERN THIS MORNING FEATURES BROAD UPPER LEVEL
TROUGHING THROUGH THE CENTRAL CONUS...NORTHWEST FLOW ACROSS THE
WESTERN CONUS...AND QUASI-ZONAL FLOW THROUGH THE EASTERN STATES.
CENTRAL CONUS TROUGHING WILL TRANSITION EASTWARD THROUGH THE SHORT
TERM PERIOD...WHILE A TROUGH CURRENTLY ENTERING THE GULF OF ALASKA
WILL SLIDE INTO THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST. THIS MEANS OUR NORTHWEST FLOW
ALOFT WILL TRANSITION TO A SOUTHWEST FLOW BY WEDNESDAY. CONDITIONS
WILL REMAIN DRY...WITH MAINLY CLEAR SKIES AND TYPICAL DIURNAL
SURFACE WIND PATTERNS EXPECTED THROUGH WEDNESDAY NIGHT. SHOULD START
TO SEE AN INCREASE IN HIGH LEVEL CLOUDS FROM THE SOUTH
TUESDAY...MORE SO WEDNESDAY. TEMPERATURES WILL CONTINUE TO RUN JUST
A LITTLE ABOVE NORMAL FOR THIS TIME OF YEAR.

.LONG TERM...THURSDAY THROUGH MONDAY.

ALTHOUGH THE UPPER LEVEL WIND FLOW WOULD SUGGEST CONTINUED DRY
CONDITIONS ACROSS THE AREA THURSDAY THROUGH SATURDAY, MODELS
FORECAST SOME LIGHT QPF REACHING INTO MOHAVE COUNTY AT TIMES. THIS
IS PARTLY DUE TO TROUGHING NEAR OR ALONG THE PACIFIC NW COAST
COMBINING WITH A PRE-MOISTENED ENVIRONMENT OVER NORTHERN MEXICO. THE
DEEPER POOL OF MOISTURE IS THANKS TO A TROPICAL SYSTEM THAT IS
FORECAST BY THE MODELS TO BE NEAR THE SOUTHERN END OF THE BAJA
PENINSULA FRIDAY MORNING MOVING NORTHWEST ALONG THE WEST COAST OF
BAJA THROUGH SATURDAY. IT TAKES SEVERAL DAYS BEFORE SUFFICIENT
MOISTURE AND INSTABILITY REACHES INTO THE FORECAST AREA FOR
THUNDERSTORM DEVELOPMENT...SUNDAY ACCORDING TO THE GFS AND MONDAY
PER THE LATEST ECMWF. BOTH MODELS ARE VERY AGGRESSIVE IN BRINGING
PRECIPITATION TO BASICALLY THE EASTERN HALF OF THE FORECAST AREA
LATE IN THE WEEKEND OR EARLY THE FOLLOWING WEEK. FOR NOW, HAVE LEFT
THE FORECAST DRY THURSDAY THROUGH SATURDAY WITH THUNDERSTORMS
MENTIONED IN MOHAVE COUNTY SUNDAY AND MONDAY. TEMPERATURES WILL
LIKELY REMAIN ON THE WARM SIDE OF NORMAL THROUGH SATURDAY BUT THE
EASTERN HALF OF THE CWA COULD SEE COOLER TEMPERATURES SUNDAY AND
BEYOND WITH HIGHER MOISTURE AND MORE SHOWER ACTIVITY AND CLOUD COVER.
&&

.AVIATION...FOR MCCARRAN...CLEAR SKIES THROUGH LABOR DAY WITH WINDS
FAVORING TYPICAL DIURNAL TRENDS MAINLY BELOW 10 KTS.

FOR THE REST OF SOUTHERN NEVADA...NORTHWEST ARIZONA...AND SOUTHEAST
CALIFORNIA...CLEAR SKIES THROUGH LABOR DAY WITH WINDS FAVORING
TYPICAL DIURNAL TRENDS. THE STRONGEST WINDS WILL BE DURING THE
AFTERNOON AND EARLY EVENING HOURS OVER WESTERN SAN BERNARDINO COUNTY
AND MOHAVE COUNTY WHERE WIND SPEEDS AROUND 15 KTS ARE EXPECTED.
&&

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

SPOTTER ACTIVATION IS NOT EXPECTED THROUGH FRIDAY.

.SYNOPSIS...WARM AND DRY CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED FOR THE REMAINDER
OF LABOR DAY WEEKEND AND INTO THE MIDDLE OF THE COMING WEEK.
&&

.UPDATE...OUTSIDE OF SOME HIGH CLOUDS ACROSS SAN BERNARDINO COUNTY,
SATELLITE SHOWS CLEAR SKIES. MODELS CONTINUE TO INDICATE A VERY DRY
AIR MASS THROUGH TUESDAY WITH NEAR TO SLIGHTLY ABOVE NORMAL
TEMPERATURES. THIS COVERED WELL IN FORECAST, NO UPDATE.

.PREV DISCUSSION...
212 PM PDT SUN AUG 31 2014

.SHORT TERM...THROUGH WEDNESDAY NIGHT...QUITE WEATHER THROUGH THE
SHORT TERM AS A NORTHWEST FLOW ALOFT TRANSITIONS TO A SOUTHWEST FLOW
BY WEDNESDAY. DRY CONDITIONS WITH MAINLY CLEAR SKIES EXPECTED
ALTHOUGH THERE MAY BE SOME INCREASE IN HIGH CLOUDS FROM THE SOUTH BY
TUESDAY NIGHT. TEMPERATURES WILL BE JUST A BIT ABOVE NORMAL WITH NO
SIGNIFICANT WINDS.

LONG TERM...THURSDAY THROUGH MONDAY.

EXTENDED PERIOD IS FORECAST TO BE QUITE THURSDAY THROUGH SATURDAY AS
HIGH PRESSURE REMAINS SITUATED TO THE SOUTH AND A TROUGH OF LOW
PRESSURE STARTS DIGGING INTO THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST. THE MODELS HAVE
TRENDED WEAKER AND SLOWER WITH THIS TROUGH SO IT LOOKS LIKE MOST OF
THE CWA WILL NOT SEE MUCH IN THE WAY OF GUSTY WINDS. TEMPERATURES
SHOULD REMAIN SLIGHTLY ABOVE NORMAL INTO NEXT WEEKEND. WILL NEED TO
KEEP AN EYE ON A POTENTIAL DEVELOPING TROPICAL SYSTEM WHICH THE
MODELS CONTINUE TO SHOW MOVING UP THE BAJA COAST SUNDAY AND MONDAY
WHICH COULD BRING A SURGE OF LOW AND MID LEVEL MOISTURE INTO THE
REGION. THE 12Z ECMWF PUSHES THE RIDGE FURTHER WEST AND NEVER REALLY
DROPS THE TROUGH INTO THE REGION WHICH WOULD ALLOW EASIER ACCESS FOR
THE MOISTURE TO BE PULLED NORTHWARD WHILE THE GFS IS STRONGER WITH
THE TROUGH AND BRINGS MORE OF A SOUTHWEST FLOW INTO THE CWA. BOTH
MODELS ARE PRODUCING FAIRLY WIDESPREAD AREAS OF QPF INTO ARIZONA AND
AS FAR WEST AS INTERSTATE 15. WE CURRENTLY HAVE SLIGHT CHANCE POPS
IN THE GRIDS SUNDAY AND MONDAY AND AT THIS TIME KEPT THEM AT SLIGHT
CHANCE...BUT IF THE MODELS REMAIN CONSISTENT THIS COULD CERTAINLY
TREND UPWARD.

.SYNOPSIS...BREEZY CONDITIONS WILL PERSIST INTO THIS EVENING AS A
LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM MOVES ACROSS NORTHERN NEVADA. TEMPERATURES WILL
COOL A BIT SUNDAY BEHIND THIS SYSTEM. OTHERWISE...DRY CONDITIONS
WILL PERSIST THROUGH THE LABOR DAY WEEKEND AND MOST OF NEXT WEEK.
&&

.UPDATE...LOCALIZED DOWNSLOPE WINDS CONTINUE TO AFFECT PARTS OF THE
FAR SOUTHERN OWENS VALLEY BUT ARE SLATED TO DIMINISH OVER THE NEXT
FEW HOURS. WILL KEEP ADVISORY GOING THROUGH 10 PM. OTHERWISE, BAND
OF HIGH CLOUDS ACROSS THE MOJAVE DESERT/NORTHWEST ARIZONA WILL
CONTINUE TO SLIDE SOUTH AND DIMINISH OVERNIGHT AS TROUGH TO OUR
NORTH MOVES EAST. REST OF THE HOLIDAY WEEKEND LOOKS SPECTACULAR WITH
CLEAR SKIES AND TEMPERATURES NOT AS WARM AS TODAY. WILL UPDATE IN AN
HOUR TO REMOVE ADVISORY HEADLINE FOR THE OWENS VALLY.

.PREV DISCUSSION...
255 PM PDT SAT AUG 30 2014

.SHORT TERM...THROUGH TUESDAY NIGHT...AN UPPER TROUGH WILL CONTINUE
MOVING ACROSS NORTHERN CALIFORNIA AND NORTHERN NEVADA TONIGHT. AN
EAST-WEST ORIENTED BAND OF HIGH CLOUDS ASSOCIATED WITH THIS SYSTEM
WAS STRETCHED ACROSS THE CENTER PART OF THE FORECAST AREA AND THESE
CLOUDS WILL GRADUALLY DECREASE THROUGH THE REST OF THE AFTERNOON AND
THIS EVENING. THE HI-RES MODELS CONTINUE TO INDICATE SOME POTENTIAL
FOR DOWNSLOPE WINDS THROUGH THIS EVENING ALONG THE EASTERN SIERRA
SLOPES INTO THE WESTERN PORTIONS OF THE OWENS VALLEY. THE WIND
SPEEDS INDICATED ARE LOW END ADVISORY LEVELS BUT WORTH KEEPING THE
ADVISORY IN EFFECT. A DRY NORTHWEST FLOW ALOFT WILL BE OVER THE AREA
BEHIND THE TROUGH LATER TONIGHT WHICH WILL TRANSITION TO A WESTERLY
THEN SOUTHWEST FLOW BY TUESDAY. THE RESULT WILL BE CONTINUED DRY
CONDITIONS WITH TEMPERATURES A LITTLE ABOVE NORMAL BUT NOT AS HOT AS
TODAY (SATURDAY).

.LONG TERM...WEDNESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY...BENIGN WEATHER EXPECTED
WEDNESDAY THROUGH FRIDAY AS THE REGION SITS BETWEEN HIGH PRESSURE TO
THE SOUTHEAST AND A TROUGH DRAPED ACROSS THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST. THIS
WILL KEEP TEMPERATURES CLOSE TO NORMAL ALONG WITH DRY CONDITIONS.
SOME LOCATIONS WILL LIKELY SEE SOME AFTERNOON BREEZY CONDITIONS EACH
DAY. THINGS GET A LITTLE MORE TRICKY FOR THE WEEKEND AS THE GFS AND
ECMWF DIFFER WITH REGARDS TO SOME SOUTHERLY MOISTURE ADVECTION. THE
ECMWF IS SHOWING A TROPICAL SYSTEM MOVING NORTH ALONG BAJA AND
STARTS TO EXPAND THE HIGH A LITTLE FURTHER WEST. THIS WOULD ALLOW
FOR MOISTURE TO BE DRAWN INTO NORTHWEST ARIZONA BY SATURDAY. THE GFS
DOES NOT SHOW THIS TROPICAL SYSTEM AND KEEPS THE HIGH FURTHER EAST
ALLOWING FOR THE SOUTHWEST FLOW TO BE STRONG ENOUGH TO KEEP THE DRY
AIR IN PLACE. I DID REMOVE THE POPS IN NORTHWEST ARIZONA THURSDAY
AND FRIDAY...BUT KEPT SOME SLIGHT CHANCE POPS FOR SATURDAY.

.SYNOPSIS...AN APPROACHING TROUGH OF LOW PRESSURE WILL INCREASE
WINDS ON SATURDAY AFTERNOON...ESPECIALLY IN THE LEE OF THE SIERRA. A

BASIN/NORTHERN ROCKIES SATURDAY. SURFACE WINDS WILL INCREASE
SATURDAY AFTERNOON WITH POTENTIAL OF A MINOR DOWNSLOPE WIND EVENT
DEVELOPING IN THE LEE OF THE SOUTHERN SIERRA IN INYO COUNTY. A WIND
ADVISORY IS IN PLACE BETWEEN 2 PM AND 10 PM PDT. ELSEWHERE, WINDS

OR DISSIPATING. FORECAST LOOKS FINE.

.PREV DISCUSSION...
238 PM PDT FRI AUG 29 2014

.SHORT TERM...LABOR DAY WEEKEND...TONIGHT THROUGH MONDAY.

THE MAIN WEATHER FEATURE WILL BE AN APPROACHING TROUGH OF LOW
PRESSURE...CURRENTLY LOCATED ALONG THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST COAST. THIS
TROUGH WILL MOVE INTO NORTHERN CALIFORNIA AND NORTHERN NEVADA ON
SATURDAY AFTERNOON...INCREASING WINDS ACROSS MUCH OF THE SOUTHERN
GREAT BASIN AND MOJAVE DESERT. THE MOST SIGNIFICANT WINDS AND
IMPACTS ARE EXPECTED IN THE FOOTHILLS OF THE EASTERN SIERRA WHERE
WIND GUSTS OF 40 TO 50 MPH ARE POSSIBLE SATURDAY AFTERNOON AND
EVENING. SOME STRONGER WIND GUSTS ARE ALSO LIKELY IN THE LEE OF THE
WHITE MOUNTAINS...BUT SHOULD BE LESS THAN 40 MPH. ALTHOUGH THE FLOW
ACROSS THE SIERRA IS NOT THAT STRONG...THE LOCAL HI-RES MODELS ARE
INDICATING THE POTENTIAL FOR BREAKING WAVES...ENHANCING THOSE WINDS
AS THEY DESCEND DOWN THE EASTERN SIERRA. TEMPERATURES ARE EXPECTED
TO BE A DEGREE OR TWO WARMER ON SATURDAY COMPARED TO TODAY IN MOST
LOCATIONS. VALUES WILL BE NEAR...BUT SLIGHTLY UNDER EXCESSIVE HEAT
LEVELS WHICH FOR THIS TIME OF YEAR IS 108 DEGREES. THE PASSAGE OF
TROUGH ON SUNDAY NIGHT WILL ACT TO COOL TEMPS A FEW DEGREES ON
SUNDAY AND REMAIN NEAR THOSE LEVELS ON LABOR DAY UNDER A DRY
NORTHWEST FLOW.

.LONG TERM...TUESDAY THROUGH FRIDAY.

MAINLY ZONAL FLOW IN PLACE ON TUESDAY...BUT AS THE NEXT TROUGH
APPROACHES THE WEST COAST THE FLOW WILL TURN MORE THE SOUTHWEST. BY
THURSDAY THE MODELS ARE TRYING TO TURN THE FLOW A BIT MORE SOUTHERLY
IN ARIZONA WHICH MAY BE ENOUGH TO PROVIDE A MODEST RETURN OF
MOISTURE TO MOHAVE COUNTY BY THURSDAY OR FRIDAY. OVERALL...A FAIRLY
QUIET WEATHER PATTERN WITH TEMPERATURES NEAR THE SEASON
NORMALS...WHICH IN THE LAS VEGAS AREA IS IN THE UPPER 90S.
&&

.AVIATION...FOR MCCARRAN...SOUTH TO SOUTHWEST WINDS AT 10 TO 12 KTS
ARE EXPECTED THROUGH TONIGHT. SOUTHWEST WINDS GUSTING AROUND 25 KTS
CAN BE EXPECTED SATURDAY AFTERNOON WITH JUST SOME HIGH LEVEL CLOUDS
AS A TROUGH MOVES ACROSS THE GREAT BASIN. LIGHT WINDS ARE EXPECTED
ON SUNDAY.

FOR THE REST OF SOUTHERN NEVADA...NORTHWEST ARIZONA...AND SOUTHEAST
CALIFORNIA...HIGH LEVEL CLOUDS ARE EXPECTED ACROSS THE GREAT BASIN
THROUGH SATURDAY AFTERNOON. SOUTHWEST WINDS GUSTING 20 TO 30 KNOTS
WILL OCCUR ACROSS MUCH OF THE REGION SATURDAY AFTERNOON AND EVENING
AS A TROUGH MOVES ACROSS THE GREAT BASIN. WIND GUSTS OF 40 TO 45 KTS
ARE POSSIBLE IN THE FOOTHILLS OF THE EASTERN SIERRA ON SATURDAY
AFTERNOON AND EVENING DUE TO DOWNSLOPE WINDS. OUR LOCAL HI
RESOLUTION MODELS ARE INDICATING THE POTENTIAL FOR BREAKING WAVES IN
THE EASTERN SIERRA SATURDAY AFTERNOON AND EVENING...STRONG TO SEVERE
TURBULENCE IS POSSIBLE.

.SHORT TERM...LABOR DAY WEEKEND...TONIGHT THROUGH MONDAY.

THE MAIN WEATHER FEATURE WILL BE AN APPROACHING TROUGH OF LOW
PRESSURE...CURRENTLY LOCATED ALONG THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST COAST. THIS
TROUGH WILL MOVE INTO NORTHERN CALIFORNIA AND NORTHERN NEVADA ON
SATURDAY AFTERNOON...INCREASING WINDS ACROSS MUCH OF THE SOUTHERN
GREAT BASIN AND MOJAVE DESERT. THE MOST SIGNIFICANT WINDS AND
IMPACTS ARE EXPECTED IN THE FOOTHILLS OF THE EASTERN SIERRA WHERE
WIND GUSTS OF 40 TO 50 MPH ARE POSSIBLE SATURDAY AFTERNOON AND
EVENING. SOME STRONGER WIND GUSTS ARE ALSO LIKELY IN THE LEE OF THE
WHITE MOUNTAINS...BUT SHOULD BE LESS THAN 40 MPH. ALTHOUGH THE FLOW
ACROSS THE SIERRA IS NOT THAT STRONG...THE LOCAL HI-RES MODELS ARE
INDICATING THE POTENTIAL FOR BREAKING WAVES...ENHANCING THOSE WINDS
AS THEY DESCEND DOWN THE EASTERN SIERRA. TEMPERATURES ARE EXPECTED
TO BE A DEGREE OR TWO WARMER ON SATURDAY COMPARED TO TODAY IN MOST
LOCATIONS. VALUES WILL BE NEAR...BUT SLIGHTLY UNDER EXCESSIVE HEAT
LEVELS WHICH FOR THIS TIME OF YEAR IS 108 DEGREES. THE PASSAGE OF
TROUGH ON SUNDAY NIGHT WILL ACT TO COOL TEMPS A FEW DEGREES ON
SUNDAY AND REMAIN NEAR THOSE LEVELS ON LABOR DAY UNDER A DRY
NORTHWEST FLOW.

.LONG TERM...TUESDAY THROUGH FRIDAY.

MAINLY ZONAL FLOW IN PLACE ON TUESDAY...BUT AS THE NEXT TROUGH
APPROACHES THE WEST COAST THE FLOW WILL TURN MORE THE SOUTHWEST. BY
THURSDAY THE MODELS ARE TRYING TO TURN THE FLOW A BIT MORE SOUTHERLY
IN ARIZONA WHICH MAY BE ENOUGH TO PROVIDE A MODEST RETURN OF
MOISTURE TO MOHAVE COUNTY BY THURSDAY OR FRIDAY. OVERALL...A FAIRLY
QUIET WEATHER PATTERN WITH TEMPERATURES NEAR THE SEASON
NORMALS...WHICH IN THE LAS VEGAS AREA IS IN THE UPPER 90S.
&&

.AVIATION...FOR MCCARRAN...SOUTH TO SOUTHWEST WINDS AT 10 TO 12 KTS
ARE EXPECTED THROUGH TONIGHT. SOUTHWEST WINDS GUSTING AROUND 25 KTS
CAN BE EXPECTED SATURDAY AFTERNOON WITH JUST SOME HIGH LEVEL CLOUDS

ON SUNDAY.

FOR THE REST OF SOUTHERN NEVADA...NORTHWEST ARIZONA...AND SOUTHEAST
CALIFORNIA...HIGH LEVEL CLOUDS ARE EXPECTED ACROSS THE GREAT BASIN
THROUGH SATURDAY AFTERNOON. SOUTHWEST WINDS GUSTING 20 TO 30 KNOTS
WILL OCCUR ACROSS MUCH OF THE REGION SATURDAY AFTERNOON AND EVENING
AS A TROUGH MOVES ACROSS THE GREAT BASIN. WIND GUSTS OF 40 TO 45 KTS
ARE POSSIBLE IN THE FOOTHILLS OF THE EASTERN SIERRA ON SATURDAY
AFTERNOON AND EVENING DUE TO DOWNSLOPE WINDS. OUR LOCAL HI

852 AM PDT FRI AUG 29 2014

.SYNOPSIS...A PLEASANT END OF SUMMER HOLIDAY WEEKEND IS IN STORE FOR
THE AREA WITH DRY WEATHER...OCCASIONAL BREEZES AND ABOVE NORMAL
TEMPERATURES EXPECTED.
&&

.UPDATE...SOME HIGH LEVEL MOISTURE FROM THE REMNANTS OF MARIE IS
STREAMING INTO CENTRAL CALIFORNIA AND NEVADA CURRENTLY. I INCREASED
CLOUD COVER ACROSS THE NORTHERN PORTIONS OF THE FORECAST AREA FOR
THIS AFTERNOON AND EVENING. TEMPERATURES CONTINUE TO TREND UP
SLIGHTLY AND WILL BE A FEW DEGREES ABOVE THEIR SEASONAL NORMS TODAY.
NO OTHER UPDATES ANTICIPATED.

.PREV DISCUSSION...
250 AM PDT FRI AUG 29 2014

.SHORT TERM...LABOR DAY WEEKEND...FRIDAY THROUGH MONDAY.

THERE WILL ONLY BE MINOR CHANGE IN THE WEATHER THROUGH THE HOLIDAY
WEEKEND. A RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE OVER THE DESERT SOUTHWEST TODAY IS
DAMPENED AS A FAST MOVING OPEN TROUGH MOVES ACROSS THE NORTHWEST
STATES AND BRUSHES THE GREAT BASIN SATURDAY. THIS WILL LEAD TO
INCREASING SOUTHWEST TO WEST WINDS SATURDAY AFTERNOON WITH SUSTAINED
SPEEDS GENERALLY IN THE 15-20 MPH AND GUSTS 25 TO 35 MPH. HIGH RES
MODELS INDICATE THE POTENTIAL FOR MODERATE DOWNSLOPE WINDS IN THE
LEE OF THE SOUTHERN SIERRA WITH GUSTS AROUND 40 MPH POSSIBLE FOR A
FEW HOURS LATE SATURDAY AFTERNOON AND EVENING. ONE OTHER THING WORTH
NOTING IS THAT SATELLITE LOOPS SHOWED THE EASTERN PACIFIC TROUGH
BEGINNING TO PULL REMNANT MID AND HIGH LEVEL MOISTURE OFF OF
DECAYING TROPICAL STORM MARIE AND SPREADING IT ACROSS NORTHERN
CALIFORNIA INTO NEVADA. THIS CLOUD COVER WILL BE PUSHED SOUTHWARD
SATURDAY AS THE TROUGH AXIS MOVES ACROSS THE REGION. SUNDAY
AND LABOR DAY WILL SEE DRY AND DECREASING NORTHWEST FLOW ALOFT
ACROSS THE REGION WITH LIGHT WINDS AND SLIGHTLY LOWER TEMPERATURES.

.LONG TERM...TUESDAY THROUGH THURSDAY.

TROUGH DROPPING INTO THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST TUESDAY WILL SHIFT
OVERALL FLOW TO THE SOUTHWEST AND CONTINUE TO KEEP THINGS DRY. WITH
TROUGH REMAINING IN PLACE TO OUR NORTH THROUGH THE FORECAST PERIOD
WE CAN EXPECT BREEZY CONDITIONS EACH AFTERNOON. TEMPERATURES RETAIN
SEASONAL VALUES AND AFTERNOON HIGHS SHOULD HOVER AROUND THE CENTURY
MARK FOR LAS VEGAS NEXT WEEK. THE LATEST RUNS OF THE ECMWF/GEM
CONTINUE TO SHOW SOME MOISTURE RETURNING INTO ARIZONA LATE NEXT WEEK
AND HAVE LIGHT PRECIP ACROSS PARTS OF MOHAVE COUNTY...BUT THE GFS
KEEPS THE MOISTURE OVER MEXICO. OVERALL CONFIDENCE IN ANY MOISTURE
RETURNING IS LOW AND WILL HAVE TO WAIT AND SEE HOW THE MODELS HANDLE
THE LOCATION OF THIS MOISTURE LATE NEXT WEEK.
&&

.AVIATION...FOR MCCARRAN...LIGHT EAST TO SOUTHEAST WINDS CAN BE
EXPECTED THIS AFTERNOON AND EARLY EVENING FOLLOWED BY DIURNAL
SOUTHWEST WINDS UP TO 10 KTS TONIGHT. SOUTHWEST WINDS GUSTING AROUND
25 KTS CAN BE EXPECTED SATURDAY AFTERNOON WITH INCREASING HIGH LEVEL
CLOUDS AS A TROUGH MOVES ACROSS THE GREAT BASIN.

FOR THE REST OF SOUTHERN NEVADA...NORTHWEST ARIZONA...AND SOUTHEAST
CALIFORNIA...GENERALLY LIGHT WINDS CAN BE EXPECTED ACROSS THE REGION
TODAY WITH INCREASING HIGH LEVEL CLOUDS ACROSS THE GREAT BASIN.
SOUTHWEST WINDS GUSTING 20 TO 30 KNOTS WILL OCCUR ACROSS MUCH OF THE
REGION SATURDAY AFTERNOON AND EVENING AS A TROUGH MOVES ACROSS THE
GREAT BASIN.
