Tonight there is considerable weather moving through LAS. For those of you interested there will almost certainly be diversions to Phoenix.

US777 PHL-LAS diverting to PHX.
Edit: HP576 SFO-LAS diverting to RNO.

That's just the beginning - looks like we're putting in overtime tonight baby.

I feel sorry for you guys manging this crap. The cell looks huge and a PITA to deal with.

Good luck tonight!

Lightning within a mile of the airport.....fueling halted.....approx 15 US Airways flights sitting in hold pads - some have been taxiing for over an hour and a half.......probably pulling an all nighter......damn I need a drink.

Edit: Ramp control advised there are over 40 aircraft in holding pads waiting to take off. HP459 PHX-LAX diverted to ONT, which has crews for 4 other flights. Kill me now.
