Diminished winds will make for a pleasant Wednesday in the Las Vegas Valley, according to the latest National Weather Service forecast.
Under sunny skies, the high should be about 86. Southerly winds that were gusting into the 40s on Tuesday are expected to be 9 to 14 mph with gusts to 20.
“The central and east side of the valley is getting gusts to about 25 mph, while the west side has calmed to about 10 to 15 mph,” meteorologist John Adair said at 4 a.m. Wednesday. “Winds will be light and variable after sunrise and then will kick up to 15 to 20 mph in the afternoon.”
The overnight low will be around 62 with similar wind conditions.
The high will be 88 on Thursday and 92 on Friday before rising to the mid-90s on the weekend.
“We’ll warm up for the weekend, and then another system coming in Sunday will kick up the winds and lower the temperatures about 10 to 13 degrees for early next week,” Adair said.
