LAS VEGAS — Expect a windy start to the week as southwest gusts hit 40 mph in the valley and 55 mph in the mountains, prompting a Windy Advisory for blowing dust and difficult driving conditions for high-profile vehicles. Temperatures only reach the upper 60s this afternoon under a partly-to-mostly cloudy sky, and there were even a few rain drops around at midday! Spotty light snow may fly in the mountains, although no accumulation is expected. Gusts will shift to the west and drop to 25 mph by late afternoon and early evening. Winds taper below 15 mph tonight, so lows are expected to reach the upper 40s after midnight. Calm conditions are expected for the middle of the week with highs climbing from the low 70s Tuesday to the mid 70s Wednesday and the upper 70s Thursday. Sunny weather Tuesday gives way to partly cloudy conditions midweek and beyond. Southwest breezes at 20-25 mph return Friday through the weekend as highs remain in the upper 70s and low 80s. Lows this week will dip to the 50s each night. Winds may increase in strength early next week.
