Weather First Forecast

A freeze watch is in effect for the Las Vegas valley this afternoon and evening with temperatures expected at or just below freezing for many areas in the valley itself.  The official low temperatures will likely be just above with lows dipping to about 37° at McCarran Airport but locations in Henderson, Green Valley, Summerlin and North Las Vegas will likely see sub freezing lows with many areas breaking into the upper or even mid 20s for some.  This is due to a very strong upper level low pressure system which has dragged some of the coldest air of the season into the Las Vegas valley.  Temperatures on Thanksgiving will be a solid 8-12° below average with highs in Las Vegas peaking at 53° tomorrow.  In addition as the center of the low moves overhead we’ll see the possibility of a few thunderstorms popping up with the cold air aloft facilitating development.  Any storms that do form could contain some hail, strong gusty winds and locally heavy rain.  A secondary system will push in on Saturday with reinforcing cold burst of air which will decrease temperatures slightly.  Highs on Saturday will be in the low 50s with many areas not breaking out of the 40s.  A slow warming trend will happen Sunday onwards but a very active Pacific pattern will really make it tough to warm past 60° due to thick cloud cover with models indicating an atmospheric river setting up for California and Oregon by the middle of next week.
