LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Winds will pick up for the rest of the weekend. Gusts as high as 20 mph around the city and upwards to 35 mph along the Colorado River.

There is a Wind Advisory in effect along the lower Colorado River Valley until Sunday evening.

These winds can produce rough conditions over the open water and cause some travel concerns for high-profile vehicles traveling from the west.

Temperatures will start off a little cooler on Sunday with highs reaching the upper 60s to low 70s by the afternoon around the city. Highs will remain in the 70s for the Laughlin/Bullhead City area.

Models are showing an upper-level low developing over the coast early next week.

It’ll make its way inland and coupled with a shortwave of energy brings the potential for light precipitation across Southern Nevada.

Most of this action is trending to stick to the south with more showers possible through Southern California, northern Mexico and eastern Arizona.

A look at upper-level moisture levels, Southern Nevada will fight with dry air but if this moist air mass can push through, some light precipitation is possible.

Most of this moisture will come in the form of clouds though. We’ll continue to monitor this system as winds will pick up early next week with thicker clouds on Monday and Tuesday.

Currently, the highest chances of rain for Clark County look to be towards the most southern tip.

Thanksgiving is shaping up to be mild with mostly sunny skies and highs around normal.
