Record high near 80 expected for Thanksgiving in Las Vegas

More than the dishes were toasty this Thanksgiving.

Las Vegas posted a record-setting high of 80 degrees during the holiday, National Weather Service meteorologist Chris Outler said. The previous record for Nov. 23 was 76 degrees, set in 1995.

The weekend will be similarly warm, Outler said.

The forecast predicts a high of 79 degrees for Black Friday and Saturday. Sunday’s high should be closer to 78 degrees, and by Monday the high will drop to 72 degrees.

Gusty winds will return to Las Vegas on Sunday. Expect wind speeds of 30 mph to 40 mph.
