LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — With 240 days in a row without measurable rain at McCarran International Airport, shattering the old record of 150 days set in 1959, we'll watch the small chance of precipitation in Thursday's forecast with a close eye.
following up at 9:34 a.m. to say that didn't amount to diddly squat here in las vegas! we'll see how the next round of 10% rain chances treat us this afternoon into the early evening. but first, some late morning sunshine...— Justin Bruce (@just1nbruce) December 17, 2020
Mid and high clouds above 10,000 feet may deliver a few light rain showers or flurries during the morning commute in Las Vegas.
Temperatures are near 40 degrees early today but will climb to near 60 degrees by early afternoon as sunshine returns and southwest winds blow at 15-25 mph.
Another batch of unsettled weather arrives this afternoon and this evening, delivering another small chance (about 10% in Las Vegas, but 60% in Mt. Charleston) of rain showers.
It's back to a dry forecast Friday through at least the middle of next week, so if we miss out on measurable rain at McCarran, the historic streak will continue.
