amount of moisture but the rain won't make it to las vegas. any moisture that is there will get squeezed out by the sierra in california and won't be much more than some thick cloud cover for las vegas and southern nevada. the good thing with this pattern is that temperatures will generally start to warm up as climatologically the temperatures moderate towards the end of january. highs for the next several days will be in the mid and upper 50s with friday looking to be the warmest day for a little while. clouds on saturday will cool things off and some clouds could contain a sprinkle or two friday night into saturday and saturday night into sunday. another more potent looking storm will push in for monday night into tuesday with another chance for some light rain. dynamics with these storms are weak at best and won't cause much of an interruption to the weather as normal for las vegas. now... to the latest consumer news...
