Temperatures that have been about 10 degrees below normal will gradually rise in the Las Vegas Valley this weekend.

There is a 20 percent chance of rain Friday, while otherwise skies will be mostly sunny. The high is expected to be around 61, according to the National Weather Service.

“The isolated rain activity will probably be north and east of the valley,” meteorologist Jen Varian said. “We’ll have wind gusts up to 10 mph, not nearly as much as Thursday. It should clear up by evening.”

Clouds will increase Friday night and the forecast low is around 49. Winds will be around 5 mph.

Saturday will be mostly cloudy in the morning before becoming sunny with a high of 64. Winds will be calm early before increasing to about 6 mph. The overnight low is projected to be about 47.

Sunday will warm to a high of 69, just a few degrees below normal.
