Air quality is expected to improve this weekend as northeast winds push wildfire smoke back toward California, according to Clark County officials.
Ozone and fine particle quality levels will range from moderate to good before a return of high pressure next week will allow smoke to seep back toward the Las Vegas Valley.
A high near 95 is forecast for Saturday by the National Weather Service with light and variable winds becoming easterly at 5-7 mph in the afternoon.
The overnight low will be around 73.
Sunday should see a high hear 93 with similar wind conditions.
An upper-level trough is forecast to move through the area in the middle of next week, bringing us relief from the heat and our first taste of fall-like temperatures. So get ready to break out the pumpkin spice and all things nice! 🍁☕#VegasWeather #NVwx pic.twitter.com/RwzNOKWxVF
