Cold streak expected to continue through Tuesday

Another cold front pushed into the Las Vegas Valley overnight that is expected to extend the streak of subfreezing temperatures until at least Tuesday.

The National Weather Service issued a hard freeze warning for tonight as temperatures are expected to dip to a low of 23 degrees at McCarran International Airport and the low teens in the western and southern portions of the valley.

Today’s high is expected to be 38 degrees — just one degree warmer than the coldest high for this date in the valley, which was in 1972, National Weather Service meteorologist John Adair said.

The valley will also experience wind gusts between 10 and 20 mph.

Temperatures first dipped below freezing overnight Wednesday.

The cold-streak is expected to snap on Wednesday, as temperatures rise into the low 50s, Adair said.
