tony smith - here's the quick and dirty forecast - dry and warm conditions are expected this weekend and through much of next conditions are expected this weekend and through much of next week as high pressure develops over the region. temperatures will be ten or so degrees above normal next week with locally breezy north winds at times. ---------------------- in the short term...through monday night -- a ridge of high pressure is expected to develop over the area during the next 48 hours keeping well above normal temperatures along with light winds over most areas. winds down the colorado river will generally be in the 10-15 mph range saturday with an increase into the 15-25 mph
the models indicate the ridge strengthening monday off the west coast with a piece of energy diving southeast along the front side of the ridge. this energy is expected to remain far enough north and east of the cwa as is pushes through monday...but we could see a few lower clouds across lincoln county...but most areas will continue to see periods of high clouds. the main concern with this feature will be an increase in north to northeast winds monday afternoon across the eastern half of the area and especially the colorado river. winds should generally remain in the 10-20 mph range with gusts possibly up to 30-35 mph down the river. -------------------------------- ----------------- the long term will start with a shortwave trough diving through utah and colorado tuesday morning. will keep the forecast aligned with the majority of the deterministic models and the short-range ensembles with keeping the northeast forecast area dry. however, the trough passage will increase northerly winds, particularly along the colorado river valley.
couple degrees tuesday and maybe wednesday, yet remain above normal for this time of year. otherwise, the trough pushes east and allows ridging to build across the western conus and hold strong through friday, with light winds and temperatures warming back to 10 or so degrees above normal. by next weekend, a shortwave trough will start to edge onshore along the california coast. at this time it appears rather weak with little in the way of precipitation potential, except for maybe the sierra nevada. west to southwest winds could pick up a bit, but right now the main feature seems to be an increase in cloud cover for saturday. ------------------------re's your weather now - your st accute forecast por 8 news now.overnightmostly clear, with a low around 50.st northwest wind 5 to 7 mph. sunday: sunny, with a high ne.lm wind becoming northrtheast 5 to 7 mph in theternoon. nday night: mtly clear, with a low around 51. light north northeast windcoming north 5 to 10 mph aednight. nday: sn th a high near .rth wind 9 to 13 mph.nday night: mostly clear, with e first in thee ucusdave courvoisier)) policsw anchor steve sebelius sits wn with a panel of political experts.ey weigh in on how clintonok nevad.d bernie sander's chances at upset.///
choice for edition." ((dave courvoisier)) > it's a big night for hillary clinton and her supporters here in nevada. she beat bernie sanders in what turned out to be a pretty close race. ((denise valdez)) let's go to steve sebelius and our panel of experts to analyze the results... and how she pulled it off. (( )) ((steve sebelius)) and we're speaking with some of our political experts. annette magnus... of battle born progress... adriana martinez... of better education now... and sig rogich... long time republican ad man and spin miester, let's start with you, sig. give some final wrap up thoughts of what you saw today. hillary clinton winning 52... sorry, dont want to take anything away from her, 53 to 47... six point race. so...
((sig rogich)) no i'm not surprised. i expected her to win here. she's been here a long time, put a lot of resources into it, had a great ground game. so, i'm not surprised by that at all. ((steve sebelius)) adriana, what do you think? you were a hillary clinton supporter and campaigned for her... ((adriana martinez)) well look, bill clinton won, she won. i called it. i said a six point race, although inside i was very nervous because you never take anything for granted. i think this is going to be the beginning of more wins for the future. ((steve sebelius)) good thing i didn't bet you when you said that. anntte what do you think? you were a hillary clinton supporter for a long time. ((annette magnus)) in my private capacity. not in my role for battle born progress. you know, i think this... i'm not surprised by it. like sig said, she's been here for a very long time had a great ground game, had people from nevada running her campaign who know what they're doing on the ground.
i think this is the momentum she need going into south carolina. she did well with africian americans here. she did well with latinos, she did well with women. and that's exactly what she needs going into south carolina. but we can't count bernie out. you know he had a great team and they are working very hard, so you cant take anything for grandted. ((steve sebelius)) yeah, absolutely. that is true. does anyone here think that bernie sanders could pull something out, pull out the upset that he talked about in his concession speech tonight? the biggest upset in political history? anybody see that happening? ((annette magnus)) no. ((adriana martinez)) i don't. ((sig rogich)) i don't. unless something unforseen happens to hillary along the way. but i don't. ((steve sebelius)) so that would be the only circumstance. sounds good. thank you all for being here. i really appreciate it.

(( )) < ((steve sebelius)) i'm here with sarah sendeck the nevada communications director for the republican national committee. thanks for being here. we're looking ahead to tuesday.
going? we saw some problems with the democratic caucus today. some long lines problems with checking ins all that kind of stuff. you think the republican caucus is going to go a little more smoothly? ((sarah sendeck)) i think we feel very optimistic about tuesday. the state party along with campaigns and county parties have all been preparing for months for tuesday. they've held caucus training. they've been getting voters registered. i think we're really expecting a strong turnout a lot of people are really excited about this caucus coming up and we feel good night. ((steve sebelius)) a lot of people have suggested we got back to the primary system and there's all sorts of issues related to that. there was a bill at the legislature to do that. does the rnc have any preference either way in how you pick the candidates in these early contests? ((sarah sendeck)) these are conversations that come up every four years and they'll come up again this year. but right now were just focused on the election cycle ahead and
of the united states. ((steve sebelius)) we'll probably revisit that after the caucus coming up. so, they're will be fewer candidates that there were before. what do you think that will do to turn out. is that going to boost turn out? is that going to lower turn out? if i was a jeb bush supporter would i have nothing to go for? do you think i'll still show up and vote for one of the remaining candidates? ((sarah sendeck)) i think we still have a very strong, diverse field of candidates. we've seen around the state people are really excited. they're excited to have these options. they're excited to out and caucus and be part of this process. people are a lot more engaged and energized than they have been in the past. we expect people to come out there and be part of this process on tuesday.
