Sunny Las Vegas conditions coming for weekend before rain arrives

High temperatures will be close to normal the Las Vegas Valley before skies cloud up and a chance of rain arrives late on the weekend.

The Thursday high should be near 56, just about the same as a 57 reached briefly during the noon hour on Wednesday, says the National Weather Service.

Thursday night will see mostly cloudy conditions with light winds and a Friday morning low near 38 in the central valley.

Friday should be sunny with a high near 57. Saturday is expected to be slightly warmer with a high near 59.

Late afternoon or evening rain on Sunday is about a 60 percent possibility after a high near 58. Rain is also possible on Monday.

Lake Mead up a bit

The surface level of Lake Mead at Hoover Dam was at 1,043.34 feet above sea level at 6 p.m. Thursday. That’s up a few inches from 1,042.97 feet on Dec. 1, but down nearly 3 feet from 1,046.18 feet on Nov. 1.
