Winds, chilly temperatures forecast for Las Vegas Valley

Updated December 26, 2018 - 10:32 pm

Windy conditions will accompany “substantially below normal” temperatures this week in Las Vegas, the National Weather Service said.

Wednesday was breezy with an about average high of 57 degrees, and temperatures were expected to dip to 39 overnight, the weather service said. There will be less wind on Thursday, but temperatures will only reach 54 degrees during the day.

After an overnight low of 38, the high will dip to 50 on Friday, when “a good push of north winds” is expected to enter the Las Vegas Valley, meteorologist Clay Morgan said. Winds could reach up to to 30 mph and will be paired with sunny skies.

Winds should begin to settle Saturday, but weekend weather conditions will remain “very chilly,” Morgan said. Saturday and Sunday should reach 49 and 52, respectively, with a low of 33 both nights.

New Years Eve should also be chilly with a high of 53 and a slight chance for rain, the weather service said.
