LAS VEGAS — Strong southwest gusts of 50 mph are in the forecast in Las Vegas today, with a Wind Advisory in place until 3 a.m. Tuesday. Highs are limited to the low 50s today with morning sun giving way to an afternoon rain chance (around 40%) although any moisture will be spotty and light. A few snowflakes may fly this evening, but again, not much moisture is expected. Lows drop to the upper 30s late tonight, and winds will drop below 20 mph after midnight. The rain chance is 40% again on Tuesday, with snowflakes in the mix due to highs only reaching the mid 40s; at least the winds will be under 15 mph. We dip to the low 30s Tuesday night. Wednesday remains cold, in the mid 40s for highs with light winds, but a round of more organized showers arrives Wednesday night and sticks around Thursday (when highs only reach the upper 40s). This system should yield a foot of snow in the Spring Mountains Wednesday night through Thursday. A few light showers, possibly mixed with flurries, are expected Friday and Friday evening, but the bigger story as we ring in the New Year at midnight will be temperatures in the upper 30s and northwest breezes at 15 mph causing wind chill values in the 20s. On Saturday (January 1st) we're sunny and chilly with north gusts up to 20 mph, wake-up temperatures in the mid 30s, and daytime highs in the mid 40s. Similar cold, bright weather continues on Sunday, although another round of rain may cross the Desert Southwest in the first week of January.
