upper 40's and lower 50's. a light breeze so far today, i mean this evening. pretty nice conditions continue and just outside the valley we are looking at upper 30's for mount charleston. upper 50's for lake mead. and as we take a close look of the satellite, you would not think that a storm system is attacking the west coast as we have seen such mild weather. but you can see that there is a lot of precipitation across california and across nevada. most of the snowfall has been happening mostly in the sierra. but there is a chance we could see some precipitation, mostly around the mountains. you can see it spilling into the area right now. and there is a chance we could see showers in las vegas tonight. 20% chance, i do not know if you will bet on it, but let me know.
we will have a chance of showers . and we will certainly hold onto clouds tonight. it will be a fairly cold night, upper 20's for alamo. 25 that mount charleston. 31 -- 51 for lake mead overnight. 43 for boulder city. overnight tonight, baha'is tomorrow -- but highs tomorrow will be lower than today. and as we wake up we will have a cold start. the bitter starting in the 40's and then getting into the 50's by the afternoon. temperatures by the end of the day will be right around the normal market with slight wind expected to continue across the area. as we take a look, warmer weather is heading our way. over the next few days, weather
it will almost be a carbon copy of sunday. it will be slightly warmer on tuesday and wednesday, and then things get unsettled. that will be just in time for the holidays. gerard: showers and cool. chloe: if we get anything it will not be cold enough for snow. gerard: ok. thank you. president obama spending his christmas vacation in hawaii. no surprise, he has been there before. they arrived there for his annual vacation. they will be there for about two weeks. the past is any indicator, he will be playing some golf. he is scheduled to return to washington in early january. it looked like a blowout became a competitive game, ultimately
superiority. the freshman cornerback lost the ball. you tell recovers and delay field position gets the forced touchdown. in the next possession, this is picked off and utah takes it to the house. they are up, 14-0. in their first five possessions, byu would turn the ball over five times. that is not with her head coach hoped for in his last game as head coach there. the team was down 45-7, but byu would come out of the locker room ready. they scored 28 unanswered points, but would go on to lose by one touchdown. utah wins and becomes the first in history to win the las vegas

and the arizona basketball team welcomes the rebels to their court tonight. and it is not a friendly place. the wildcats had their longest home winning streak at 45 games and this is a team that is looking for revenge. last year, there was an upset with number three arizona. they are coming off a 10 point loss at home to arizona state. the wildcats on the other hand are 10-1, coming off a win over northern arizona. they are 10th in the country in rebound margin. junior ben carter -- >> rebounding is essential. it is toughness and effort. as need to look -- the guys need to look and find it. we can drill it as much as we
balls, but at the end of the day you have to dig inside and find it. amber: they'll have to do a lot of digging tonight. they are underdogs. gerard: hopefully they got a talking to and they are thinking about this. they could turn it around and be in good shape. we will see what happens. a lot of people are tired of politics, so much so that in one town they are endorsing the
the governor is supposed to select one of six candidates, but an online poll shows that a cat has more than 90% of votes. some local politicians understand that there is a serious message there. that city has been riddled with corruption. so, if that is the case, go with the cap. thank you for announcer: it's time to play "family feud"! give it up for steve harvey! steve: how's everybody? let's go. thank you very much. i appreciate y'all, now. all right, everybody, welcome to family feud. i'm your man, steve harvey. we got another good one for you today. this family here returns for their third day, with a total of 20,980 bucks.
