A typical spring pattern continues, with several systems sweeping by the area in the next week. The first system moves in today, making for a windy day with gusts to about 40 mph around the Las Vegas valley. Also, expect mainly sunny skies and highs at or just below 90 degrees. That system moves on and the next one moves on Monday afternoon. This will keep us low end windy with gusts to about 35 mph and highs in the mid 80s. This is system is a slow mover and will continue to push through on Tuesday. By this day we'll be breezy and high temps will run a degree or two cooler that afternoon.
The next system will be a very large, slow moving system. We'll start to get some breezes ahead of it on Wednesday and high temps will remain in the mid 80s that day. However, by Thursday we'll be back in the windy category and will remain there on Friday as the system slowly makes it's way through the area. Also, the system will drag in cooler air dropping high temps to around 80 on Thursday, then the upper 70s on Friday. Some models are pointing to even cooler temps on both of those days, something we'll be watching closely. Saturday the system will make its exit and the winds will relax to the breezy category. Also, high temps will rebound a bit to the low 80s.
