Las Vegas to see above-average highs before storm arrives

Updated November 14, 2019 - 11:03 pm

Warm weather in the Las Vegas Valley is expected to continue with sunny skies until a storm system from Southern California brings cooler conditions and chances for rain next week.

Highs are expected to stay about 10 degrees above the normal of 67 for this time of year until Wednesday, when a storm system is expected to move into the valley, meteorologist John Adair said.

Thursday’s high reached 74 degrees, and the sunny weather is forecast to continue with highs of 75 on Friday, 77 on Saturday, 75 on Sunday, and 76 on Monday and Tuesday.

Overnight lows are expected to be in the low 50s.

Although Saturday’s high is in the mid-70s, evening temperatures for the Rock ‘N’ Roll Marathon are expected to be in the 60s.

The dry spell that has been November is expected to end Wednesday, which has a 20 percent chance of rain and an expected high of 66, Adair said.

“If things continue to go on track, that number will go up,” Adair said about the rain chances. “When (storm systems) come in from Southern California, they tend to bring a lot of moisture up into Southern Nevada.”
