The Las Vegas Valley should experience a gradual warm-up over the next few days, the National Weather Service said.
Thursday is expected to reach 49 degrees; Friday, 50; Saturday, 54; and Sunday, 57.
By early next week, temperatures should reach the low 60s, meteorologist Andy Gorelow said. Dry conditions and mostly sunny skies are also forecast until the middle of next week, at which point there could be precipitation.
Lows for the next few days, however, should stay in the low to mid-30s, “just shy of freezing,” added meteorologist John Salmen said. Valley residents may wish to wrap exposed pipes to protect them from the low temperatures.
Some breeziness is also expected over the next few days, the weather service said. Thursday evening could bring winds of 15 to 25 mph into Friday.
Winds Friday and Saturday should remain in the 10 to 15 mph range.
