Las Vegas warm spell will last into next week before cooler days

Warm fall conditions will keep Las Vegas Valley high temperatures around 70 through the weekend, according to the National Weather Service.

The Thursday high topped out at 69, a drop of 6 degrees from Tuesday, thanks to some high clouds that filtered out some of the sunlight.

Friday’s forecast high is 71 with calm winds below 5 mph. The overnight low should be around 48.

Conditions will remain similar through the weekend before highs begin to drop into the mid-60s next week.

A cold front dropping into Nevada and Las Vegas Monday night into Tuesday will usher in a period of cooler temperatures and an outside chance of rain, said weather service meteorologist John Adair.

“There will be some slight chances of rainfall late in the week with a second front coming in,” Adair said.
