Temperatures have dropped to the low and mid 30s this morning but the big story will be increasing winds with gusts of 20 mph during the commute increasing to 40 mph by midday and 45 mph this afternoon through this evening. Gusts to 30 mph linger tonight through Friday. Afternoon temperatures in the mid 50s will drop to the upper 30s late tonight and only rebound to near 50° on Friday afternoon. Small shower chances for Las Vegas this afternoon and tonight, and again on Friday afternoon, but very limited moisture. It's possible that a few flakes will mix in with the isolated rain tonight, but not all that likely. Snow showers will accumulate today and tomorrow in Lincoln County and to our east in Utah and Arizona.
The weekend will be quiet but cold with highs in the low to mid 50s. A round of 20 mph gusts Saturday night through Sunday. Briefly warming to the low 60s on Monday as 20 mph gusts continue, then a better chance of showers on Tuesday as highs fall back to the 50s.
