After wind gusts approaching 60 mph in several locations on Monday, they will continue at a slightly less velocity across much of the Las Vegas Valley on Tuesday.
The forecast high is 49, but it will feel several degrees colder with winds of 13-18 mph gusting up to 30 mph, according to the latest National Weather Service forecast.
“There will be a definite wind chill factor,” weather service meteorologist John Salmen said.
Today, winds should be calmer after sunset, dropping to 7-10 mph. The overnight low is expected to be close to freezing, perhaps lower in some areas.
On Monday, Southern Highlands had a gust of 56 mph while Apex hit 54, and Summerlin and Henderson Executive Airport each recorded gusts of 53 mph.
Wednesday’s forecast has a high of 54 with winds decreasing to 5-10 mph. The norm is 60.
Sunny skies will prevail and high temperatures are expected to climb each day, with highs back in the 60s by the weekend.
