The Las Vegas Valley is heading into a cool and breezy weekend, according to the National Weather Service.

The forecast high for Saturday is 61 degrees, joined with mostly cloudy skies and a 10 percent chance of rain in the valley, the weather service said.

“Maybe a few sprinkles, enough to wet the pavement in some areas,” meteorologist John Adair said.

Winds will pick up to 15 to 25 mph with gusts up to 30 or 35 mph on Saturday night into Sunday, the weather service said.

Sunny skies will return Sunday, with a high dipping down to about 56 degrees. Monday should see a high of 55 degrees, Adair said.

Temperatures will begin rising Tuesday, the weather service said, with a high of 59.

Lows will remain in the low 40s, aside from a drop to 36 degrees on Monday.
