Cold front rolling into Las Vegas for Thanksgiving weekend

A cold front is rolling into the Las Vegas Valley just in time for the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, according to the National Weather Service.

Meteorologist Barry Pierce said lows are expected to drop into the low- to mid-40s overnight on Tuesday, with temperatures hovering between 60 and 65 degrees across the valley on Wednesday and Thursday.

“Tomorrow will be breezy, with north winds picking up to 15 to 25 mph,” Pierce said. “The winds can make it feel cooler tomorrow and on Thanksgiving day.”

Pierce said the valley has been running above average for temperatures this month, but that the holiday is expected to stay around average. Temperatures are expected to rise a tad into the weekend, forecast around 63 to 68 for Friday and 67 to 72 for Saturday and Sunday.

The holiday weekend is expected to remain sunny and dry with no rain in the forecast.
