Calm Las Vegas Saturday will yield to windy Sunday conditions

Saturday should be the best half of the weekend, according to the latest National Weather Service forecast.

A high of 63 is expected with light winds and a sunny sky.

The Sunday morning low will be around 41 and the temperature should rise to near 66. However, winds will escalate from 14-19 mph in the morning to 21-26 mph in the afternoon. Gusts could reach 38 mph. Patchy blowing dust after 2 p.m. is possible.

A wind advisory for the Spring Mountains begins at 10 a.m. Sunday and runs to 10 p.m. West winds of 25-35 mph may gust as high as 45 mph.

Breezes will lighten Sunday night before a Monday low around 41. A cold front that won’t carry any precipitation will drop the Monday high to around 60 and temperatures will be about the same for the coming week.
