LAS VEGAS — Expect windy weather and cooler temperatures for Presidents Day. In spite of sunshine, readings will only climb to the mid 60s this afternoon as southwest and west gusts hit 40 mph. A Lake Wind Advisory is posted for Lake Mead, Lake Mohave, and the Colorado River Valley, and a Wind Advisory is posted for Southern Clark County. West gusts tonight up to 25 mph will accompany a clear sky and lows near 40°, yielding wind chills in the 20s and 30s at times. Tuesday remains windy, with southwest gusts back to 40 mph, mostly cloudy conditions, and highs only in the mid 50s. A 30% chance of showers (raindrops mixed with snowflakes) develops late Tuesday and Tuesday night, although no accumulation is expected in Las Vegas. That chance climbs to 50% Wednesday morning through Wednesday night, again in the form of a mix of raindrops and snowflakes, as northwest gusts of 25 mph yield wake-up temperatures in the upper 30s and afternoon highs only in the low 50s. Again, no accumulation is expected in Las Vegas. A Winter Storm Watch is in effect Tuesday and Wednesday for Lincoln County, with a couple inches of snow possible in Caliente making travel along Highway 93 slippery. Thursday is sunny and calmer, but quite chilly for late February with wake-up temperatures in the low 30s and afternoon highs again limited to the low 50s. Friday looks mostly sunny, with mid-30s in the morning and mid-50s in the afternoon. Low 60s build back this upcoming weekend, then upper 60s Monday, then low 70s through the middle of next week.
