SYNOP:
Waning high pressure will produce very warm temperatures today, but cooler weather will slowly overspread the area late this week and into the weekend. High temperatures today will be similar to yesterday with afternoon readings ranging from the 70s at the coast to the upper 90s to 103 in the San Joaquin Valley and other interior valleys and foothills. The low desert will be close to 112. There will be a few mid and high level clouds over southern California through Friday which will be too thin to impact temperatures much. After today, onshore flow will increase which will generate windy weather in the mountains and deserts during the afternoon hours. West winds of 25-35 mph will be possible on the Sierra Front Thursday with some gusts to 40 mph possible in the Antelope Valley and Banning Pass each afternoon through the weekend. Temperatures will cool a few degrees beginning Thursday, and by Sunday, temperatures will likely remain in the 80s in the valleys. Moisture from Hurricane Bud will be drawn into the Southwest, the bulk of which will stay east of the region. But a handful of wet thunderstorms will be possible Friday on the desert side of the Cleveland National Forest eastward toward the desert south of highway 62. No further thunderstorm activity is expected through the weekend. A low pressure area may bring some showers and isolated wet thunderstorms to the Sierras north of Yosemite N.P. next Monday or Tuesday. Temperatures will begin to climb again early next week. Most areas are expected to see RH remain in the teens for minimums with good recovery at night.

NWS LAS VEGAS SYNOP– (NORTH & EAST OF COUNTY)
Hot and dry weather with low afternoon humidity in the single digits to low teens will persist through Thursday. Moderately breezy southerly winds can be expected during the afternoon hours,
especially on Thursday. A few isolated showers or thunderstorms are possible mainly over southern Mohave County Thursday afternoon/evening. A brief surge in moisture will bring a chance for
showers or thunderstorms across southern Nevada, northwest Arizona,and eastern San Bernadino County Friday and Saturday. Temperatures will trend downward Friday through the weekend.

ClarFORECAST DETAILSk County, Lincoln County, and San Bernardino County
Friday: Cloudy. Isolated light showers and Thunderstorms possible in the afternoon. Heavy rain, Gusty winds (35-45 mph) an lightning expected in the vicinity of thunderstorms.

Saturday: Cloudy. Isolated light showers. Thunderstorms possible in the afternoon but mainly confined to eastern portions of Clark and Lincoln Counties. Heavy rain, Gusty winds (35-45 mph) an lightning expected in the vicinity of thunderstorms.

SPECIAL NOTES: none at this time

DAILY FUELS/FIRE POTENTIAL:
Large fire potential will decrease in the valleys and urban interface areas after today due to cooler weather and more marine layer influence. But there will likely be an elevated risk of large fires in the desert interface areas and other regions which are prone to sea breezes each afternoon Friday into the weekend. Dead fuel moisture is closing in on record low readings across much of Southern California, especially areas south and east of Los Angeles County. The fuels are driest over Orange County and western Riverside County as these areas missed most of the winter/spring precipitation. Live fuels in these areas are also dry enough to exhibit rapid fire spread and good consumption during peak heating hours. Light IA can be expected through the entire period.

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

The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on recently downgraded Tropical Storm Bud, located a few hundred miles south-southeast of the southern tip of the Baja California peninsula.

An area of low pressure centered several hundred miles south- southwest of the Gulf of Tehuantepec has become better defined since yesterday. Environmental conditions are forecast to be
somewhat conducive, and slow development could occur during the next couple of days as the system drifts north-northwestward. By the weekend, interaction with land is expected to limit further
organization. Regardless of development, locally heavy rain causing flash floods and mudslides is possible over the southern portions of the Mexican states of Guerrero and Oaxaca beginning in
a day or so and continuing into the weekend.

* Formation chance through 48 hours…low…20 percent.

* Formation chance through 5 days…low…30 percent.

…BUD WEAKENS TO A TROPICAL STORM…

SUMMARY OF 600 AM MDT…1200 UTC…INFORMATION

LOCATION…19.1N 108.8W
ABOUT 270 MI…435 KM SSE OF CABO SAN LUCAS MEXICO
MAXIMUM SUSTAINED WINDS…70 MPH…110 KM/H
PRESENT MOVEMENT…NNW OR 330 DEGREES AT 2 MPH…3 KM/H
MINIMUM CENTRAL PRESSURE…990 MB…29.23 INCHES

WATCHES AND WARNINGS
——————–
CHANGES WITH THIS ADVISORY:

None.

SUMMARY OF WATCHES AND WARNINGS IN EFFECT:

A Tropical Storm Watch is in effect for…
* Santa Fe to La Paz, Mexico, including Cabo San Lucas

A Tropical Storm Watch means that tropical storm conditions are possible within the watch area, generally within 48 hours.

For storm information specific to your area, please monitor products issued by your national meteorological service.

DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
———————-
At 600 AM MDT (1200 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Bud was located near latitude 19.1 North, longitude 108.8 West. Bud is moving toward the north-northwest near 2 mph (3 km/h). Although Bud
has been nearly stationary for the past few hours, a general motion toward the northwestward with a slight increase in forward speed is expected to resume later today and continue into Thursday. Bud is
forecast to accelerate northward late Thursday into Friday. On the forecast track, the center of Bud will cross southern Baja California Sur early Friday and move over the Gulf of California
later on Friday.

Maximum sustained winds have decreased to near 70 mph (110 km/h) with higher gusts. Although additional weakening is expected, Bud is forecast to still be a tropical storm when it reaches southern
Baja California Sur late Thursday or Thursday night.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 105 miles (165 km).

The estimated minimum central pressure is 990 mb (29.23 inches).

HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
———————-
WIND: Tropical storm conditions are possible within the watch area beginning on Thursday.

RAINFALL: Bud is expected to produce additional rainfall of 2 to 4 inches across much of southwestern Mexico through Thursday, with isolated maximum amounts of 6 inches. These rains could cause life-threatening flash floods and mud slides.

Bud is also expected to produce 1 to 3 inches of rain with isolated totals of 5 inches across southern portions of Baja California Sur and Sonora in northwestern Mexico through Saturday.

SURF: Swells generated by Bud will affect portions of the coast of southwestern Mexico, western mainland Mexico, and the southern Baja California Peninsula during the next few days. These swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions.
Please consult products from your local weather office.
