With the coldest point of a cold spell reached early Tuesday, the Las Vegas Valley will see a slow warming trend through the rest of the week.
After a high of 50 on Monday, the Tuesday low was expected be freezing or a degree or two below, said meteorologist Caleb Steele. The lowest reading for 2019 at McCarran was 28 degrees on Jan. 2.
Tuesday will see sunny skies, but a high of 49. Northeast winds will be 5 to 8 mph.
Tuesday night will be mostly cloudy with a low around 33. Light and variable winds will become north-northwest around 5 mph.
Wednesday’s forecast calls for increasing clouds with a high near 51. Calm winds will increase to about 5 mph.
Daily highs are expected to rise a few degrees each day with weekend highs of 59.
The next precipitation possibility is early next week, Steele said.
“It looks like early next week will be fairly active starting Monday, but it’s too early to get specifics,” he said.
