Breezy weekend with highs in the 60s in Las Vegas Valley

Updated November 24, 2018 - 9:37 pm

A cold front this weekend in Las Vegas will make way for a storm system bringing snow to the mountains next week, according to the National Weather Service.

Saturday’s high reached 67 degrees but cooler temperatures are on the way, the weather service said.

The cold front will move in Sunday and be accompanied by winds gusting between 10 to 20 mph, which will move through the valley after dark, said meteorologist Trevor Boucher. “It’s a pretty weak cold front but enough to shift winds and make it breezy overnight.”

Winds should taper off by Sunday afternoon when the valley will see a high of 60 degrees. Highs near 62 will follow on Monday and Tuesday, while Wednesday and Thursday should reach 64 and 61, respectively, the weather service predicts.

The storm system will move in from the Pacific Coast around 4 a.m. Thursday, Boucher said, introducing chances for rain in the valley and snow in the surrounding mountains.

“The bigger news is not so much the rain but that we’ll probably get some significant snow in the Sierras again and possibly in the Spring Mountains,” he said.
