Warmest Las Vegas weekend since New Year’s Eve forecast
A clear Las Vegas Friday morning is forecast to turn cloudy before high temperatures reach into the 60s for the weekend.
The sun will hide behind mostly cloudy skies Friday with a forecast high near 58 and light breezes in central Las Vegas, says the National Weather Service.
A warming trend is expected into the weekend. A weak storm system passing through Sunday will bring more snow to the Sierra and possibly some light snow to Lincoln County, while the Mojave Desert remains mainly dry and breezy. Cooler temps will return Monday. #azwx #cawx #nvwx pic.twitter.com/EyLKaX4S6E

On Saturday, the morning low will be near 40 with clear skies that will grow cloudy later in the day before rising to a high near 63. Winds will again be light, around 5 mph from the northeast.
Sunday will be a bit more breezy with a high near 66. The readings above 60 will be the first since a high of 60 on Jan. 10.
The last weekend day with a high above 60 was a 63 on New Year’s Eve, said meteorologist Trevor Boucher.
Temperatures will decline starting Sunday night into Monday as a dry cold front moves into the valley from the northwest, says the weather service.
Highs early next week will be around 61 with lows near 40.
