LAS VEGAS — It’s going to be a very cool Memorial Day in Las Vegas. In fact, it may be cool enough to set a record.
Temperatures are only expected to reach the low 70s today, which is 20 degrees below average, and there could even be a passing rain shower this morning. A storm is possible this afternoon, and an additional shower can't be ruled out this evening.
Memorial Day showers and thundershowers are in the forecast for Las Vegas. Expect a 30% opportunity for a few raindrops this morning. The chance for a downpour in your neighborhood this afternoon will increase to 50%. https://t.co/vMVGM2gmQS pic.twitter.com/PGjOd7Qpko— Justin Bruce (@just1nbruce) May 27, 2019
Snow is expected for Mount Charleston. The snow level is currently around 7,000 feet. A Winter Weather Advisory for the Spring Mountains will expire at 11 a.m. but a few additional afternoon snow showers are possible.
