Showers are tapering off as we head into your Thursday evening. Any showers will be isolated around the Las Vegas Valley tonight. Wind will stay with us through the evening with gusts in the 20 to 30 mph range. Some isolated gusts to 40 mph are possible around the west valley. Overnight temperatures fall back into the 40s.
A dry weekend is on the way with more sunshine for Friday. The forecast high in Las Vegas is at 61 degrees. Skies will be partly cloudy on Saturday with mostly cloudy skies on Sunday. The forecast high both days is at 63 degrees.
The clouds on Sunday may interfere with viewing the total lunar eclipse Sunday night. The total eclipse will occur between 8:41 p.m. and 9:43 p.m. PST.
Another system will clip us on Monday bringing the slight chance of a few showers on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Wind will be picking up again Monday and will carry into Tuesday. High temperatures fall back into the upper 50s. Look for more sun and lighter wind for Wednesday and Thursday next week.
