SYNOP: (NWS SAN DIEGO)
Hot weather for inland areas will continue today. For Tuesday through the end of the week, a trough of low pressure moving slowly inland through the western states will spread cooling inland and deepen the marine layer. For the weekend through early next week, high pressure over the southwest states will strengthen. This will bring a warming trend with the marine layer becoming shallower. Some monsoonal moisture could return by Sunday or Monday.

NWS LAS VEGAS SYNOP– (NORTH & EAST OF COUNTY)
Dry, southwesterly flow is expected for much of the upcoming week as the ridge shifts southward away from the Four Corners region and a broad trough situates over much of the Western U.S. A shortwave trough will approach and pass Monday through Wednesday bringing breezier conditions to the local area. Tuesday looks to be the more widespread of the days with gusts up to 30 to 40 mph. Wednesday could see similar wind strengths over Mohave County with other areas seeing gusts decrease to 20-30 mph. Otherwise, breezy,
southwest winds and critical RH values continue each afternoon through the end of the week with gusts generally in the 20 to 25 mph range.

CONFIDENCE AND DETAILS
Southern Nevada, Southeast California, & Northwest Arizona

HIGH Confidence
Dehydration, hyperthermia, and heat cramps could affect those who do not take precautions.
Hot temperatures may increase heat-related emergency calls. Increased risk to children and
pets left unattended in hot vehicles or outdoors.

MODERATE Confidence Extreme fire behavior and rapid fire growth Tuesday afternoon and evening.
LOW Confidence Dangerous boating conditions due to strong winds and significant wave activity.

Details:
Monday
Similar high temperatures to Sunday.
Moderate heat risk for Clark, Mohave, San Bernardino, southern Nye, and Inyo counties.
Tuesday – Eastern Clark & Lincoln counties; Mohave County

Fire Weather Watch- Late Tuesday morning through Tuesday evening. Gusty winds combined with low RH values and critical fuels could lead to critical fire weather concerns. Sustained winds of 20-30 mph with gusts up to 40 mph possible. Minimum relative humidity values: 5-10%. Waves of 1 to 2 feet will be possible on portions of Lake Mead and Lake Mohave Tuesday afternoon and evening creating potentially dangerous boating conditions.

THIS DAY IN WEATHER HISTORY:
2010: An easterly wave brought widespread showers and thunderstorms to inland areas. One of the more intense storms affected Borrego Springs, where a strong downburst downed power lines and tore a roof from a building.

1998: It was 94° in Big Bear Lake, the highest temperature on record. This also occurred on this date in 1972 and on 7/18/2005.
1985: A large Mesoscale Convective Complex (MCC) over Sonora, Mexico sent a surge of moisture into Southern California, resulting in strong thunderstorms that caused havoc throughout the mountains and deserts. One storm cut power to the Palm Springs Aerial Tram, stranding 145 people, who were later rescued by helicopter. Heavy rains from the same storm inundated the tramway parking lots and closed parts of Highway 111. Separate storms flooded more than 50 homes in Yucca Valley and Twentynine Palms, and downed a small plane near Mormon Rock (killing all three aboard).

1972: It was 94° in Big Bear Lake, the highest temperature on record. This also occurred on this date in 1998 and on 7/18/2005.

==================================================================
TROPICAL EAST PACIFIC REPORT:
For the eastern North Pacific…east of 140 degrees west longitude:

A westward-moving tropical wave has emerged off the coasts of Costa Rica and Nicaragua this morning. An area of low pressure is likely to form in association with this disturbance during the next few
days several hundred miles south of the southern coast of Mexico. Conditions appear favorable for gradual development of this system by late week and over the weekend while it moves westward to
west-northwestward at 10 to 15 mph. * Formation chance through 48 hours…low…near 0 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days…low…30 percent..
