EDC weekend will be cooler, windier in Las Vegas

Updated May 20, 2022 - 8:05 am

After getting Las Vegas to its first 100-degree day with a high of 102 on Thursday, conditions will be considerably cooler much of the weekend for the Electric Daisy Carnival.

“A cold front should come through around 8 a.m. Friday and we’ll only see a high around 84,” National Weather Service meteorologist Chris Outler said, adding that northerly winds of 15-17 mph could gust into the 26-mph range.

The Clark County Department of Environment and Sustainability has issued a dust alert for today. Southwest winds are bringing dust into the Vegas Valley from the Mojave Desert. Officials say unhealthy levels of dust could affect people with breathing problems.

After a Saturday morning low near 62, the high should be about 84 with breezy conditions before warming to 93 on Sunday.

“We’ll stay in the 90s until another 100 or so on Wednesday,” Outler said.
