The tens of thousands of runners in Sunday’s Rock ‘N’ Roll Marathon should have excellent weather conditions for Sunday’s race along the Las Vegas Strip.
Warm weather in the Las Vegas Valley is expected to continue with sunny skies until a storm system from Southern California brings cooler conditions and chances for rain next week.
Above normal temperatures will stick around this week in the Las Vegas Valley, according to the National Weather Service.
Sunday hit a high of 75 degrees, and temperatures were expected to jump up to 78 on Monday. After that, the week’s weather will only fluctuate by one degree, meteorologist Ashley Wolf said.
Sunny conditions are expected, with high temperatures closer to normal for this time of year. Highs are forecast in the mid 70s for next week.
The city’s Courtyard Homeless Resource Center was packed overnight, with about 200 people huddling for warmth to fend off near-freezing temperatures.
On Halloween morning, parts of the Las Vegas Valley will feel temperatures around freezing, according to the National Weather Service.
With low temperatures forecast to be near freezing or in the upper 20s this week, Las Vegas and Clark County officials are offering advice to residents to help them deal with the early onset of cold weather.
Wind associated with the cold front that passed through the valley early Sunday will persist for much of Sunday with gusts out of the north up to 40 mph.
The National Weather Service has issued a fire weather watch, starting early Sunday morning, due to high winds and low humidity. Outdoor burning is discouraged.
