1 day of sun before windy, wet weather forecast to start week

Winter’s grip might soon be easing on the Las Vegas Valley, but don’t count on it for a few days.

Sunday should be sunny with a high near 58. However, breezy conditions will prevail, with afternoon/evening gusts reaching to 26 mph, says the National Weather Service.

There is a 20 percent chance of rain after 10 p.m. Winds will stay close to 20 mph.

Monday brings a 40 percent chance of showers and a high near 49.

A Tuesday low near 32 in the central valley will mean freezing conditions at higher elevations.

Temperatures are then expected to warm, getting close to the normal low 60s by next weekend.

The current snowpack conditions show the water equivalents for the Colorado River and Virgin River basins to be on par with the wet year of 2011.
