Some moisture is creeping back into the area, bringing the chance for pop-up showers and thunderstorms Friday and Saturday. Cooler changes are on the way early next week.
It's hazy sunshine around the area today. Some of the thickest haze is focused west of Las Vegas around the Pahrump Valley. This smoke is coming from a wildfire over the Sequoia National Forest in California. The smoke will be pushing farther north on Friday as moisture returns to the area.
We'll see a push of moisture from the south, bringing scattered showers and thunderstorms back in the forecast Friday and Saturday.
