Rain becomes more widespread across the Las Vegas Valley during the afternoon and evening Saturday with high temperatures holding in the upper 50s and low 60s. For most of the Las Vegas Valley this will be a cold rain, but there is the chance of some snow mixing in for the highest elevations of the valley Saturday evening. Other areas looking at higher snow potential will be around the Pahrump Valley and down I-15 heading into Southern California. Along with the rain, we’ll deal with wind gusts in the 30-40 mph range.

Up in the mountains, a Winter Storm Warning is in effect for Mt. Charleston and Lee Canyon through early Sunday morning. 1 to 2 feet of snow is forecast with locally higher amounts possible. Travel will be impacted heading up and down the mountain on Saturday. Travel will also be impacted heading outside Las Vegas into Arizona, California, Utah, and Northern Nevada Saturday evening.

The storm moves out on Sunday, setting us up for drier weather into early next week. We’ll keep it cool with shower chances returning again for the middle of next week.
