Two low pressure areas will provide a windy weekend for Las Vegas Valley residents after a mild Friday, the National Weather Service says.
Friday’s high is forecast to be near 73 with light and variable winds.
Conditions will change Saturday when the first low pressure area will boost winds from 5-10 mph in the morning to 13-18 mph in the afternoon with gusts up to 25 mph, meteorologist Kate Guillet said.
Skies will be sunny and the predicted high Saturday is 79 with an overnight low about 55.
“Winds will be a bit higher on Sunday,” Guillet said, noting that steady winds of 14-21 mph could bring gusts up to 30 mph.
The Sunday high temperature should be around 76 with an overnight low of 54.
“The trough (low pressure) will be hanging around the desert southwest pretty much all week, bringing chances for rain,” Guillet said.
There is a 20 percent chance of scattered showers starting Monday afternoon. The odds of rain Tuesday through Thursday range from 40 to 50 percent.
