Temperatures in the Las Vegas Valley this week are expected to creep back to the norm, if not a bit above it, the National Weather Service said.
Tuesday’s high is expected to reach 56 degrees. Temperature highs should be in the mid-50s to low 60s before cooling down a bit when “another storm system comes in this weekend,” meteorologist Todd Lericos said.
Wednesday should hit 60 degrees; 59 degrees, Thursday; and 60 degrees, Friday.
Lows are expected to start about 34 degrees Tuesday morning before climbing into the 40s by Thursday morning.
The expected storm system for the weekend will bring light winds but not rain, the Weather Service said. Skies will be primarily sunny with some high clouds at the end of the week when the storm front moves in.
The National Weather Service forecast that Monday’s low would sink to the 20s in Las Vegas for the first time since New Year’s Day, but Lericos said it never reached the previously forecast 29 degrees at McCarran International Airport.
The hard freeze warning issued for the Las Vegas Valley overnight Sunday and into Monday morning expired by 8 a.m. Monday, Lericos said.
