LAS VEGAS (KTNV) – There will sometimes be gusts for the start of the week. Gusts of up to 20 mph around town and up to 35 mph along the Colorado River on Sunday night. A wind advisory is in effect along the lower Colorado River Valley until Sunday evening. These winds can produce difficult conditions over open water and cause movement problems for high-visibility vehicles coming from the west. Temperatures will start a little cooler on Sunday with highs hitting the upper 60 degrees to lower 70 degrees in the afternoon around the city. The peaks will remain in the 1970s for the Laughlin / Bullhead City area.
Models show an elevation depression developing on the coast early next week. It will travel inland and, together with a short wave of energy, it will offer the potential for light precipitation in southern Nevada. Most of this action tends to stay in the south with more showers possible across SoCal, northern Mexico, and eastern Arizona. A look at the next level humidity levels, southern Nevada will face a tough fight with dry air. Most of this moisture, however, will come in the form of clouds. More clouds will form on Monday and Tuesday.
Thanksgiving promises to be mild with mostly sunny skies and around normal highs.
