Windy Friday will calm for sunny, dry Las Vegas weekend

Updated January 10, 2020 - 5:15 am

A windy Friday with steady breezes from 16 to 23 mph and occasional gusts up to 30 mph should subside by late afternoon, bringing a weekend with lots of sunshine and temperatures a degree or two below normal.

“As expected, a cold front came through Thursday evening and the winds will die off this afternoon. It was a pretty quick shot,” said National Weather Service meteorologist Clay Morgan. “It will be a gradual process with less and less wind by noon and then less by 4 p.m.”

With sunny skies, Friday’s projected high is 54, compared to a normal of 57. The overnight low will dip to 34, about 3 degrees below normal.

The forecast for Saturday and Sunday is pretty much identical with calm winds.

Temperatures will rise just a few degrees early next week with a forecast that is dry and sunny.

“There is no chance for precipitation through Tuesday and perhaps beyond,” Morgan said.
