tying it. just getting very close. skimming it. just a little bit. 57 degrees boulder city. exact same point we were this time yesterday. no change in the temperature there. feels wonderful. winds are relatively calm. they should pick up a ill bit for tomorrow. 61 north las vegas. exactly where we were this time yesterday. temperatures holding steady. that's all you really want when you start getting 70s. you don't mind if we stay in the 70s, but you don't necessarily want to go down to the 60s, although those are still very nice this time of year and considered normal this time of year. we were going to get there. let me show you what we've got to do to get there. high pressure is on board. no little disturbance could really make its way in the picture here. at least not cruising across the pacific northwest. jet streams to the north, high pressure built in. by monday, it's strong enough to keep us warm. jet stream is out of the way. that's really far enough north to keep all the storms to the north. look what happens for tuesday. a little buckling down to the south. so even though we're not going to drag the system in, it's

high pressure at bay. weaken it enough to drop the temperatures down below the 70-degree mark. that's our cooldown. one day. that's it. i think you'll enjoy. let me show you the next seven. let's do round robin. 80s for tomorrow. you saw 80s today in love -- lofland. 37 overnight. indian springs with 73 for the high. not bad. you can see mesquite, looking good. 75 for tomorrow. upper 70s as well. boulder city, very nice conditions. the 7-day, middle 70s tomorrow. where is our cooldown? tuesday. that's it. before we warm things back up again. i've been teasing the idea of a cooldown, but i cheated on that. it's really only one day. a little dip. >> we're back up again.

8:58 pm
the whole scene was caught on camera. firefighters lowered ropes and a ladder for the woman to grab onto. but both were too slippery. thankfully she was able to grab onto the wall. the rescue boat finally reached her with no time to spare. >> we ended up losing the ladder and her. by that time the boat hadn't made it up here. we picked her up at the stairs. probably another two minutes. she wouldn't have been able to hang on much longer. >> crews aren't sure if she jumped or fell into the icy river. she was taken to a nearby hospital where she's being treated for hypothermia. they're being sued because of a review they left on yelp. while they were on vacation, they hired prestigious pets to watch their two dogs and fish. they got worried when their house alarm was turned off and they couldn't get ahold of anyone. >> i can't reach the walker personally. i had to e-mail through the company.
