Las Vegas Valley under wind advisory Sunday

Temperatures in the Las Vegas Valley are expected to remain lower than usual through the week with a chance for near-freezing lows on the outskirts of town, the National Weather Service said.

There were high winds and light rain throughout the valley Sunday and there was snow in the Spring Mountains.

Kyle Canyon measured at least 2 to 3 inches of snow Sunday morning, Spring Mountains Visitor Gateway worker Rhonda Chinault said, and on the other side of Mount Charleston, the visitor’s center also had some snowfall.

“There was already a light dusting when I got up here this morning,” she said, “but it started snowing real good after 11 or 12.”

Monday should have light winds in the evening and a 57-degree high.

Highs for the week are forecast at 56 degrees for Tuesday, 54 degrees for Wednesday and 55 degrees for Thursday. Wednesday night might bring near-freezing temperatures to the valley’s edges, the Weather Service said.
