Freezing temperatures expected through Tuesday

Mother Nature doesn’t care about your complaints, the cold temperatures will be here for a few more days, the National Weather Service said Sunday.

Meteorologist Chris Stachelski said a hard freeze warning has been extended until Tuesday morning for everywhere in Clark County below 3,500 feet. The warning means temperatures are expected to dip below freezing for an elongated period of time and hit 20 degrees or colder for parts of the Las Vegas Valley.

Sunday’s low temperature reached 23 degrees, with a high of 38 degrees, as measured from the weather service’s official monitoring station at McCarran International Airport.

The high for today is expected to reach 39 degrees, with a low of 25. Tuesday’s high is expected to reach 46 degrees, with a low of 25.

Stachelski said temperatures will begin to rise Tuesday, and the cold front is expected to leave town.

“Tuesday will be the last chilly day,” Stachelski said. “After that, we’re looking at temperatures getting closer to normal.

The average high temperature for Jan. 14 in the Las Vegas Valley is 58 degrees, with an average low of 39.

The hard freeze warning urges people to cover exposed pipes and pool equipment, run pool filters during the day and early morning and bring pets and plants indoors to prevent freezing.
