AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LAS VEGAS NV
238 PM PDT FRI AUG 29 2014

.SYNOPSIS...AN APPROACHING TROUGH OF LOW PRESSURE WILL INCREASE
WINDS ON SATURDAY AFTERNOON...ESPECIALLY IN THE LEE OF THE SIERRA. A
DRY NORTHWEST FLOW WILL THEN BE IN PLACE THROUGH LABOR DAY. SATURDAY
WILL BE THE HOTTEST DAY OF THE WEEKEND...THEN TEMPERATURES WILL COOL
A FEW DEGREES ON SUNDAY AND MONDAY...BUT REMAIN SLIGHTLY ABOVE THE
SEASONAL NORMALS.
&&

.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.
&&

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...SPOTTER ACTIVATION IS NOT EXPECTED
THROUGH THE WEEKEND.

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.

907 AM PDT THU AUG 28 2014

.SYNOPSIS...DRY WEATHER AND SLIGHTLY ABOVE NORMAL TEMPERATURES ARE
EXPECTED THROUGH THE WEEKEND INTO EARLY NEXT WEEK.
&&

.UPDATE...NO CHANGES TO THE FORECAST NEEDED THIS MORNING. -SALMEN-
&&

.PREVIOUS DISCUSSION...212 AM PDT...

.SHORT TERM...THROUGH SATURDAY NIGHT...CLEAR SKIES AND LIGHT WINDS
AREAWIDE THIS MORNING. VERY LITTLE TO TALK ABOUT THROUGH THE SHORT
TERM AS OUR AREA WILL BE UNDER DRY WEST TO NORTHWEST FLOW ALOFT
BETWEEN TROUGHS PASSING ALONG THE CANADIAN BORDER AND HIGH PRESSURE
NEAR 30N 120W. TEMPERATURES WILL CLIMB TO SLIGHTLY ABOVE NORMAL WITH
TYPICAL AFTERNOON SOUTHERLY BREEZES.

.LONG TERM...SUNDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY...QUIET WEATHER EXPECTED
THROUGH THE EXTENDED PERIOD AS WE STAY IN DRY WEST TO NORTHWESTERLY
FLOW ALOFT. MODELS ARE IN VERY GOOD AGREEMENT IN TAKING A TROUGH
LOCATED OVER THE INTERMOUNTAIN WEST SATURDAY EASTWARD SUNDAY AND
THEN BUILDING A WEAK RIDGE OVER THE AREA MONDAY AND TUESDAY. WITH
MINIMAL CHANGES IN THE UPPER LEVEL HEIGHT FIELDS...EXPECT
TEMPERATURES TO STAY ROUGHLY THE SAME SUNDAY THROUGH TUESDAY.
STARTING WEDNESDAY ANOTHER TROUGH IS FORECAST TO DROP INTO THE
PACIFIC NORTHWEST. MODELS HAVE THE MAIN ENERGY FROM THIS TROUGH
SHIFTING QUICKLY TO THE EAST LATE NEXT WEEK. HOWEVER...THERE IS SOME
SUGGESTION THAT A PIECE MAY BREAK OFF THE PARENT TROUGH AND WE MAY
HAVE ANOTHER CUT-OFF LOW SETUP SOMEWHERE OFF THE CALIFORNIA COAST.
WITH THE TYPE OF PATTERN WE HAVE SEEN SO FAR THIS SUMMER WOULD NOT
BE SURPRISED IF THIS IS WHERE THE MODELS WILL TREND OVER THE NEXT
FEW RUNS. STILL FAR OFF IN THE EXTENDED PERIOD BUT WE MAY START A
SLIGHT INCREASE IN MOISTURE INTO NORTHWEST ARIZONA LATE NEXT WEEK
WITH THIS CUT-OFF LOW SETUP AS WINDS BECOME MORE SOUTHERLY. LOCALLY
GUSTY WINDS EACH AFTERNOON ARE POSSIBLE BUT NOTHING SIGNIFICANT
EXPECTED THROUGH THE PERIOD. TEMPERATURES LATE NEXT WEEK WILL COOL A
FEW DEGREES IN RESPONSE TO THE TROUGH BUT REMAIN CLOSE TO NORMAL.
&&

.AVIATION...FOR MCCARRAN...ASIDE FROM PERIODS OF EASTERLY WINDS IN
THE LATE MORNING AND AFTERNOON EACH DAY...NO OPERATIONALLY
SIGNIFICANT WEATHER IS EXPECTED THROUGH THE WEEKEND.

FOR THE REST OF SOUTHERN NEVADA...NORTHWEST ARIZONA...AND SOUTHEAST

TEMPERATURES APPROACHING OR EXCEEDING SEASONAL NORMALS. HIGH CLOUDS
WILL PASS ACROSS THE AREA FRIDAY AND SATURDAY BUT OTHERWISE...MOSTLY
CLEAR CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED.

.UPDATE...UPPER LOW CONTINUES TO PULL AWAY TO THE EAST THIS EVENING
AND CLOUDS ACROSS LINCOLN AND MOHAVE COUNTIES HAVE BEEN DISSIPATING.
I UPDATED SKY GRIDS TO REDUCE SKY COVER FOR THE EVENING. NO OTHER

.AVIATION...FOR MCCARRAN...DRY CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED THROUGH THE

WIND SPEEDS GENERALLY UNDER 10 KTS.

CALIFORNIA...NO OPERATIONALLY SIGNIFICANT WEATHER IS EXPECTED
THROUGH THE WEEKEND.
&&

.PREV DISCUSSION...
220 PM PDT WED AUG 27 2014

.DISCUSSION...VERTICAL CLOUD DEVELOPMENT HAS BEEN LIMITED TODAY AND
CONFINED TO MAINLY MOHAVE COUNTY. A COUPLE OF ISOLATED STORMS WERE
NOTED EARLIER OVER NORTHERN MOHAVE COUNTY NEAR THE COCONINO COUNTY
BORDER. THERE REMAINS A SLIGHT CHANCE OF STORMS THIS AFTERNOON OVER
MOHAVE COUNTY BUT THERE IS EVIDENCE OF DRY AIR ENCROACHMENT FROM THE
WEST, AT LEAST AT THE SURFACE WHERE DEWPOINTS HAVE DROPPED FROM NEAR
60 DEGREES EARLIER TODAY ALONG THE COLORADO RIVER VALLEY TO CURRENT
VALUES IN THE MID TO UPPER 40S.

STRONG HIGH PRESSURE OFF THE SOUTHWEST COAST WILL KEEP THE TROPICAL
SYSTEM CURRENTLY KNOWN AS TROPICAL STORM MARIE WELL OUT TO SEA OVER
THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS AS IT WEAKENS AND DISSIPATES. HOWEVER, SOME
OF THE HIGH LEVEL MOISTURE FROM THE SYSTEM COULD MAKE IT INTO THE
AREA FRIDAY AND SATURDAY AS A PACIFIC TROUGH APPROACHES THE COAST
AND DIRECTS THE MOISTURE EASTWARD. THE TROUGH WILL PASS THROUGH THE
NORTHERN GREAT BASIN AND NORTHERN ROCKIES OVER THE WEEKEND
POTENTIALLY BRINGING LOCALLY GUSTY WINDS TO THE AREA. OTHER THAN
THAT, CONDITIONS WILL BE DRY THROUGH THE MIDDLE OF NEXT WEEK WITH
TEMPERATURES WITHIN A FEW DEGREES OF SEASONAL NORMALS.

.UPDATE...OTHER THAN A FEW CLOUDS IN NORTHERN LINCOLN COUNTY HUGGING
THE UTAH BORDER, SKIES ARE MAINLY CLEAR THIS MORNING. WATER VAPOR
IMAGERY SHOWS THE UPPER LOW OVER EAST CENTRAL UTAH AND MODELS
FORECAST THE LOW SHIFTING EAST AWAY FROM THE AREA THROUGH THE DAY.
SPC ANALYSIS SHOWS THE BEST MOISTURE AND INSTABILITY RESIDING ACROSS
MOHAVE COUNTY THIS MORNING AND SHOULD BE SUFFICIENT TO SUPPORT
ISOLATED STORMS LATER THIS MORNING THROUGH ABOUT MID AFTERNOON.
DRIER, MORE STABLE AIR IS THEN FORECAST TO MOVE INTO THAT AREA LATE
THIS AFTERNOON. LOCAL HI-RES MODELS FORECAST WIDELY SCATTERED QPF
OVER MAINLY EASTERN MOHAVE COUNTY THROUGH MID AFTERNOON AND THEN
CLEAR IT OUT AS WELL. THE INHERITED FORECAST LOOKS GOOD AND NO
UPDATES PLANNED AT THIS TIME. -SALMEN-

AREAS TODAY. BY TONIGHT THE LOW WILL BE LONG GONE AND DRY AIR WILL
HAVE OVERSPREAD THE REGION SO EXPECT NO PRECIP TONIGHT THROUGH
FRIDAY NIGHT. TEMPERATURES WILL RISE ABOUT FIVE DEGREES IN MOST
AREAS FROM TODAY TO FRIDAY AS HIGH PRESSURE BUILDS IN.

.LONG TERM...SATURDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY...A TROUGH MOVING THROUGH
THE WESTERN STATES SATURDAY THROUGH MONDAY WILL KEEP DRY CONDITIONS
ACROSS THE REGION. REMNANT MOISTURE FROM TROPICAL SYSTEM MARIE WILL
LIKELY SPREAD SOME CLOUDS ACROSS PORTIONS OF THE CWA SATURDAY AND
SUNDAY...BUT THIS WILL GENERALLY BE IN THE FORM OF HIGH CLOUDS.
TEMPERATURES ARE EXPECTED TO BE SEASONAL WITH HIGHS TOPPING OUT A
DEGREE OR TWO EITHER SIDE OF NORMAL. WINDS COULD BECOME LOCALLY

THROUGH WEDNESDAY...THE MODELS INDICATE HIGH PRESSURE EXPANDING
ACROSS THE SOUTHWEST STATES LEAVING MOST AREAS DRY WITH SLIGHTLY

AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LAS VEGAS NV
807 PM PDT TUE AUG 26 2014

.SYNOPSIS...A LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM OVER CENTRAL NEVADA AND MONSOON
MOISTURE SEEPING UP FROM THE SOUTH WILL CONTINUE THE RISK OF SEVERE
WEATHER AND FLASH FLOODING THIS AFTERNOON AND EARLY EVENING...MAINLY
OVER MOHAVE COUNTY. DRIER AIR WILL MOVE IN BEGINNING TOMORROW...WITH
ONLY A SLIGHT CHANCE OF THUNDERSTORMS OVER MOHAVE COUNTY...FOLLOWED
BY DRY WEATHER AREAWIDE THURSDAY THROUGH THE WEEKEND.
&&

.UPDATE...THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY ENDED ACROSS MUCH OF MOHAVE COUNTY
EARLY THIS EVENING AND IT LOOKS LIKE FURTHER DEVELOPMENT IS NOT
LIKELY. MEANWHILE...THUNDERSTORMS WITH HEAVY RAIN HAVE BEEN SAGGING
SOUTHEAST THROUGH SOUTHERN LINCOLN COUNTY AND FAR SOUTHWEST UTAH.
THIS ACTIVITY MAY CONTINUE SOUTHEAST INTO NORTHERN MOHAVE COUNTY
KEEPING A CHANCE OF FLASH FLOODING THERE THROUGH THE EVENING. I
CANCELLED THE FLASH FLOOD WATCH FOR THE NORTHWEST DESERTS ZONE BUT
KEPT IT GOING FOR THE PLATEAU. I ALSO UPDATED THE GRIDS FOR LESS SKY
COVER AND LOWER POPS IN MANY AREAS. -HARRISON-

.PREV DISCUSSION...
214 PM PDT TUE AUG 26 2014

.SHORT TERM /THROUGH THURSDAY NIGHT/...
AN UPPER LOW IS CURRENTLY SPINNING ACROSS CENTRAL NEVADA AND WILL
PUSH INTO UTAH TOMORROW. MOISTURE HAS INCREASED NORTHWARD ACROSS OUR
EASTERN COUNTIES OVER THE LAST 24 HOURS. DEWPOINT READINGS IN THE
50S AND 60S AS WELL AS EFFECTIVE BULK SHEAR VALUES OF 30-40 KNOTS
ARE COMMON ALONG AND EAST OF THE COLORADO RIVER. EARLY CONVECTION
ACROSS MOHAVE COUNTY HAS PRETTY MUCH EXITED TO OUR EAST. WE ARE IN A
BIT OF A LULL AND THE QUESTION BECOMES WILL ADDITIONAL CONVECTION
DEVELOP IN THE CLEARING BEHIND THESE STORMS. THE LATEST HIGH
RESOLUTION MODELS INDICATE ADDITIONAL DEVELOPMENT IS LIKELY ACROSS
MOHAVE AND PORTIONS OF LINCOLN INTO THE EARLY EVENING AS ANOTHER
VORT MAX APPROACHES. WITH THE SKY CLEARING...CUMULUS AND A FEW
SHOWERS DEVELOPING...PLENTY OF LOW LEVEL MOISTURE...QUITE A BIT OF
CAPE...AND NO CIN AROUND IN THE MOIST AIRMASS...WILL KEEP THE FLASH
FLOOD WATCH GOING FOR A LITTLE LONGER TO SEE HOW THINGS PAN OUT. ONE
ITEM THAT MAY HINDER ADDITIONAL DEVELOPMENT IS THE WIND SHEAR. AS
THE LOW APPROACHES...INCREASED WINDS ALOFT MAY LIMIT VERTICAL
DEVELOPMENT AND THUS LIMIT STORM POTENTIAL...BUT WE WILL CONTINUE TO
MONITOR TRENDS.

THIS UPPER LOW WILL SHIFT INTO UTAH TOMORROW...WITH DRIER AIR
PUSHING IN AND LIMITING ANY SHOWER AND STORM CHANCES TO MOHAVE
COUNTY TOMORROW AFTERNOON AND EVENING. HIGH PRESSURE BUILDS IN
THURSDAY FOR DRY WEATHER AREAWIDE. TEMPERATURES WILL BE A BIT BELOW
NORMAL TOMORROW THEN WARM TO NEAR NORMAL THURSDAY.

.LONG TERM...FRIDAY THROUGH TUESDAY...OTHER THAN REMNANT HIGH LEVEL
MOISTURE FROM HURRICANE MARIE MOVING ACROSS THE AREA FRIDAY INTO
SATURDAY...VERY LITTLE SENSIBLE WEATHER TO TALK ABOUT DURING THE
LONG TERM. A LONG WAVE TROUGH IS FORECAST TO WORK ITS WAY ACROSS THE
NORTHERN STATES SATURDAY, ESSENTIALLY PUSHING MOISTURE EAST AND
RESULTING IN A DRY NORTHWEST FLOW ACROSS THE FORECAST AREA THAT
CONTINUES THROUGH TUESDAY. TEMPERATURES ARE EXPECTED TO BE SEASONAL
WITH HIGHS TOPPING OUT A DEGREE OR TWO EITHER SIDE OF NORMAL. WINDS
COULD BECOME LOCALLY GUSTY EACH AFTERNOON BUT NO SIGNIFICANT WINDS
ARE EXPECTED.
&&

.AVIATION...FOR MCCARRAN...THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE LIKELY OVER THE
PEACH SPRINGS AND MORMON MESA CORRIDORS THROUGH THIS EVENING.
PREVAILING WINDS WILL BE SOUTH-SOUTHWESTERLY THROUGH THE OVERNIGHT
PERIOD...WITH GUSTS DIMINISHING. WEDNESDAY MORNING WINDS SHOULD BE
LIGHT BUT FAVOR MORE OF A NORTHEAST FLOW. THERE WILL ONLY BE A
SLIGHT CHANCE OF THUNDERSTORMS IN THE PEACH SPRINGS CORRIDOR ON
WEDNESDAY THEN DRY WEATHER IS EXPECTED THURSDAY.

FOR THE REST OF SOUTHERN NEVADA...NORTHWEST ARIZONA...AND SOUTHEAST
CALIFORNIA...THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE LIKELY OVER MOHAVE COUNTY THIS
EVENING AND ALSO POSSIBLE OVER PORTIONS OF LINCOLN COUNTY. SEVERE
WEATHER AND VERY HEAVY RAIN WILL BE POSSIBLE. THERE WILL BE ONLY A
SLIGHT CHANCE OF THUNDERSTORMS OVER MOHAVE COUNTY WEDNESDAY FOLLOWED
BY AREAWIDE DRY WEATHER ON THURSDAY.
&&

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...SPOTTERS SHOULD REPORT HEAVY
RAINFALL...FLASH FLOODING...STRONG WINDS...BLOWING DUST...AND HAIL
TODAY. THE MAIN AREA IMPACTED WILL BE MOHAVE COUNTY...WITH CHANCES
ALSO IN LINCOLN COUNTY.
