The month of May has been a record-setting month for mild Las Vegas Valley weather condition, however temperature levels are expected to climb up back to average as soon as Tuesday, the National Weather condition Service stated.
For the first time considering that the service began measuring valley temperatures in 1937, Las Vegas has tape-recorded 21 straight days of temperatures under 90 degrees in May, NWS stated on its Twitter account. The previous record was 20, set in 1983 and 1977.
“We’ve been stuck in a weather pattern where there is an area of low pressure or troughing throughout the West Coast,” meteorologist Mike Paddock discussed.
But the existing streak, which started on Might 4, could be snapped by Tuesday.
Though Monday high had not been anticipated to surpass 86 degrees, Tuesday’s high was anticipated at 90– just 2 degrees listed below the May 26 average of 92.
“All good ideas need to alter,” Paddock quipped, “including our moderate weather condition.”
If Tuesday doesn’t break the streak, Wednesday’s high is 91, Thursday’s high is 94 and Friday could reach 99, Paddock said.
“High pressure will certainly begin to integrated, so temperature levels will increase, precipitation will decrease, and the skies will certainly be sunnier,” Paddock stated.
To name a few changes brought by this month’s mild temperatures were 4 days of thunderstorms, NWS stated. Generally, May brings only one day of thunderstorms to the valley each year.
