Las Vegas Valley residents will be able to enjoy a mild start to the weekend before temperatures turn cooler and winds pick up.
Friday’s high reached 78 degrees, only one degree above the normal high for this time of year, according to the National Weather Service forecast.
The overnight low will be around 54 with calm winds.
Saturday will be warmer with a high of about 85. Winds will again be mostly calm until the afternoon, when breezes will start to pick up into Sunday.
With a cold front expected to move in early Sunday, the forecast high will be about 65 with winds that may include gusts up to 40 mph, said meteorologist Trevor Boucher.
The high on on Monday will drop to 60, followed by highs of 68 on Tuesday and 62 on Wednesday. Overnight lows will be in the low 40s.
It’s possible a cold front arriving early Wednesday may make conditions ever cooler, Boucher said.
“Right now the official forecast is for the low 40s on Wednesday morning, but some of the models are trending lower,” Boucher said. “We might be in the upper 30s on Wednesday morning.”
