CURRENT and RECENT-PAST 3 days HOURLY: Las Vegas Weather or enter your zip code
note: pressure of 30 = fair weather, below 29.5 = storm aka low pressure system, it typically starts raining when the pressure lowers to around 29.5 or 29.6).

METEROLOGY GUIDE (a great explanation)
WEATHER MAPS: H = Fair, L = Storm, wind generally blows west to east, green dots are Doppler Radar = Rain

Reading up at Wikipedia, I estimate that Las Vegas being around 2000 feet above sea level, is usually around -5 (kPa), so at sea level if it was 1010 (kPa) then perhaps it would be 1005 (kPa) in Las Vegas (2000 feet above sea level). See link to chart, but note their elevation is in Meters not Feet

but generally it goes from west to east.
So if you see a H or High pressure west of Los Angeles, it will soon be over Las Vegas (maybe a day or two?)
And if you see a L or Low pressure west of San Francisco, it will soon be over Reno Nevada and Lake Tahoe
stormy LOW PRESSURE is counter clockwise (reverse that south of equator)
fair HIGH PRESSURE is clockwise (reverse that south of equator)
North of the Equator you Ground the Negative
Zinc has a negative charge
South of the Equator you Ground the Positive? (i hope so)
Aluminum has a positive charge
The North Magnetic Pole has a Negative charge
The South Magnetic Pole has a Positive charge
Electron flow goes from negative to positive so the Aurora electrons must be going from the North pole to the South pole, and possibly, protons go from the South pole to the North pole? in the form of gases? makes sense?
