Gusts may reach 30 mph Tuesday with a high of 106

Updated August 11, 2020 - 6:58 am

Gusts to 30 mph might be felt Tuesday afternoon in the Las Vegas Valley, according to the latest National Weather Service forecast.

The forecast high at McCarran International Airport is 106, a degree higher than Monday’s peak temperature. Light morning winds of 5 to 10 mph will increase to 15 to 20 mph in the afternoon.

Wednesday should see a high of 105. Overnight lows that have been in the upper 70s for much of the valley recently will move into the low 80s.

Conditions will remain similar through the week until high temperatures rise to around 110 to 112 for the weekend, the forecast says.

Some clouds could develop starting Thursday but aren’t likely to produce moisture.

“The clouds will be pulling some midlevel moisture from Hurricane Aleta off the Baja California coast,” weather service meteorologist John Adair said. “Right now, there’s not much chance of anything falling out of those clouds, but that’s a potential.”
