Dry and warmer than average weather persists across the area. The reason is that NV remains under a ridge of high pressure. The ridge is acting as a blocking feature which prevents moisture in the lower atmosphere from moving over NV (some high clouds are moving across NV which makes it a “dirty” ridge). The ridge also has a broad downward motion in the atmosphere which also further inhibits some cloud formation. As for why it is warmer than normal the ridge brought warmer air from the south into NV, keeping the skies relatively clear allowing for more solar heating, and the downward motion creates some compressional heating. All in all this created the perfect recipe for some lovely warm autumn days. The ridges are becoming more transient in nature which is a herald that these nice days may be numbered so be sure to enjoy them while they last.

Anyone notice how early it gets dark? Well as we head into the second half of the month many locations will be seeing less than 10 hours of sunlight a day! Make the most of that sunlight while you can!

The Earth System Research Laboratory has data pertaining to sunrise and sunset times. Through November, we’ll see daylight hours from approximately 10.5 hours, and closing out the month with just under 10 hours of daylight. Saturday, December 21st, will be the shortest day of the year. That is the winter solstice.
