Warm winds to prevail until cold front arrives in Las Vegas

Updated May 6, 2022 - 5:32 am

Warm and windy weather will continue into the weekend — when the warm factor will be sharply reduced by Monday.

Friday should rise to about 97 while southwest wind gusts could reach 31 mph. Winds will remain strong overnight before a Saturday low around 71.

Saturday will likely reach 94 with winds gusting up to 33 mph. Overnight winds will be up to 30 mph.

Fire weather watch

A fire weather watch for the entire region runs from late Sunday morning through Sunday evening.

West to southwest winds of 25 to 35 mph could gust as high as 50 mph, says the weather service. Afternoon humidity values will be 5-15 percent. Any fires that develop would likely spread rapidly. Outdoor burning is not recommended.

A Mother’s Day high of 86 is forecast with patchy blowing dust after 3 p.m.

The Monday high will reach about 79 as a cold front moves through the valley.

The high Tuesday and Wednesday will be in the upper 70s with overnight lows in the lower 50s.
