The sunny skies we saw to start the weekend will be out of the picture, as cloud cover rolls in ahead of our next Winter Storm System. Snow has began for the higher elevations and rain showers will be here through the day for the Las Vegas Valley. The west and southwest valley could see over .5 inch of rain. Also, snow levels are expected to drop to 4000 ft. which means Summerlin and possibly Anthem could see flurries. The showers will continue on and off throughout the day on Sunday and highs will top out in the upper 40s and very low 50s around the valley. We could still see overnight and early morning showers into Monday, before the showers start to wind down and skies start to clear later Monday afternoon. While Sunday will bring breezy winds, Monday will be gusty with peak gusts to about 45 mph around the valley. Highs on Monday will remain around 50 degrees.
This large slow moving system will may its way through the area until it makes its final exit early Wednesday. This means Tuesday will still be cold and breezy with highs in the upper 40s. Wednesday will only gain a few degrees, but we'll see more sunshine than in days prior. High pressure will slowly try to build in to the area and while temps will hover around 50 through Friday, the winds will be calmer and there will be sunny to mainly sunny skies. By Saturday, we rebound to the mid 50s and will see clear skies.
