6:46 pm
gusts of 30. cabbage up there is little cooler at 97 degrees. over the hobbit is 99 with a very light breeze from the southwest.which would be in the direction of the fire. rest of the temperatures if you're heading out, north las vegas checking in a 102, beautiful downtown henderson at 103 outside the valley it is 100 even. sandy valley and mesquite still at 104. as you make plans for thursday, it will be pretty warm still to get the day started about 87 at 8:00 a.m.. right around 100 at lunchtime and we wpi we will see a few clouds and maybe that smoke in the morning. not completely confident it will be back but a decent chance we will have some smoke in our sky early tomorrow morning. not much wind to blow it out early but as the day rolls on the breezes to pick up and again they shift enough out of the south that we should clear out yet again. we've been watching this very determined line between the humid air to the ease and the triumphs of the west.
6:47 pm
one showered in southern parts of henderson today. there's more where that came from. i'm just not confident that we are going to really saturate the air mass. so a couple of mountain thunderstorms over the next few days. that is possible and the valley, not quite as likely. right now 70 in la, 91 salt lake, thomas hi phoenix at 105. san diego 77, san francisco 73. for southern nevada tonight, going up to 81 in the moapa valley, 79 in boulder city, high temperatures r the mountain, 99 indian springs, not as warm and sandy valley but plenty more plenty of excess degrees in death valley. our valley tonight going down to 82, again there is a chance for some smoke late this evening. that is through tomorrow morning, when the wind shift especially in the afternoon we will clear out any smoke that it if it even develops. when a five is the expected high. your seven-day forecast and here's what you've been waiting for, all summer.
