Mild, dry Las Vegas winter expected to continue, forecasters say

Updated January 13, 2022 - 6:23 am

Las Vegas temperatures will remain several degrees above normal into the weekend, according to the National Weather Service.

Wednesday’s zenith reached 65 at Harry Reid International Airport, well above the norm of 58 for mid-January.

Some developing high clouds are expected to keep the Thursday high to 63, meteorologist Andy Gorelow said.

No rain is expected from the clouds as a front that forecasters thought might move inland stayed off the Pacific coast.

“It stayed well offshore and all we’ll get is some high clouds on Thursday,” Gorelow said. “We’ll stay 5 to 7 degrees above normal into the weekend and drop a little closer to normal from the weekend well into next week.”

Friday is expected to be the warmest day of the week at around 65.

The cloudy sky of Thursday will gradually yield to clear skies by Saturday, according to the forecast.
