AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LAS VEGAS NV
120 PM PDT SUN JUL 5 2015

.SYNOPSIS...MOIST AND UNSTABLE AIR WILL ALLOW FOR ISOLATED TO
SCATTERED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS TO CONTINUE THROUGH MONDAY
BEFORE DRIER AIR BEGINS TO WORK INTO THE REGION TUESDAY. THIS WILL
START A TREND OF DRYING CONDITIONS THAT WILL LAST THROUGH THE
REMAINDER OF THE WEEK. TEMPERATURES WILL REMAIN SLIGHTLY BELOW
NORMAL THROUGH THE WEEK.
&&

.SHORT TERM...UPPER LEVEL DISTURBANCE LIFTING NORTHEAST HELPING TO
GENERATE SOME FAIRLY STRONG AND LONG LIVED STORMS ACROSS THE EASTERN
AND SOUTHERN AREAS OF THE CWA. MOST HAVE BEEN ANCHORED TO THE
TERRAIN AND THEN NEW STORMS FORMING ON THE OUTFLOW BOUNDARIES OF THE
OLDER STORMS. THIS TREND WILL LIKELY CONTINUE THROUGH THE AFTERNOON
BEFORE SHIFTING NORTH BY LATE AFTERNOON AS THE DISTURBANCE LIFTS
NORTH. CONVECTION COULD GO FAIRLY LATE THIS EVENING ACROSS THE
NORTHERN ZONES BEFORE THE DISTURBANCE FINALLY MOVES AWAY. MOISTURE
AND INSTABILITY WILL REMAIN ACROSS THE AREA MONDAY FOR ANOTHER DAY
OF ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS. DO NOT SEE ANY SPECIFIC TRIGGER FOR
STORMS OTHER THAN HEATING AND TERRAIN. A DRYER SOUTHWEST FLOW IS
EXPECTED TO PUSH THE MOISTURE EAST TUESDAY WITH JUST A FEW ISOLATED
STORMS OVER THE FAR EAST CWA TUESDAY AFTERNOON. WEDNESDAY THROUGH
THE END OF THE WEEK WE WILL SEE DRY CONDITIONS AS THE SOUTHWEST FLOW
REMAINS IN PLACE. TEMPERATURES WILL ALSO REMAIN A FEW DEGREES BELOW
NORMAL THROUGH THE WEEK.
&&

.AVIATION...FOR MCCARRAN...SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS WILL REMAIN IN
THE VICINITY OF MCCARRAN THROUGH THE REMAINDER OF THE AFTERNOON.
VARIOUS OUTFLOW BOUNDARIES LEADING TO VARIABLE WINDS ARE EXPECTED
THROUGH THE REMAINDER OF THE AFTERNOON. GUSTS UP TO 40 MPH WILL BE
POSSIBLE WITH SOME OF THE STRONGER STORMS. ANY STORM COULD ALSO LEAD
TO MUCH LOWER CIGS ACROSS THE AREA.

FOR THE REST OF SOUTHERN NEVADA...NORTHWEST ARIZONA...AND SOUTHEAST
CALIFORNIA...SCATTERED SHRA/TSRA ARE WILL CONTINUE THROUGH THE
AFTERNOON WITH THE MOST LIKELY STORMS OVER CLARK...MOHAVE...LINCOLN

SIERRA. ANY STORM WILL LEAD TO GUSTY AND ERRATIC WINDS WITH SPEEDS
UP TO 40 MPH. VSBY/CIGS REDUCED TO MVFR OR LOWER ALONG WITH POSSIBLE
