A Wind Advisory remains in effect through 9 p.m. Saturday with wind gusts up to 50 mph around Southern Nevada. Temperatures are running well below average for mid-June.

Skies will be partly cloudy on Saturday with high temperatures holding in the low 90s around the Las Vegas Valley. Our average high this time of year is 100°. With the dry conditions and gusty wind, a Red Flag Warning is also in effect on Saturday due to the heightened fire danger.

We’ll see less wind on Sunday with sunny and mild temperatures. The forecast high in Las Vegas is at 89°. Temperatures start to rise early next week with 94° on Monday and 101° on Tuesday for the first day of summer.

Our first taste of some monsoon moisture starts to push into the area Wednesday through Friday. Rain and thunderstorm chances are low at this point, but we can’t rule out an isolated shower or storm popping up around Southern Nevada. The best chance will be over the mountains.
