Las Vegas will have sunny skies and another shot for the high temperature
record book again today, says the National Weather Service.
Forecasters predict today's high will climb to near 84 degrees, which would
match the old record for this date set in 1980.
The normal high for a Nov. 5 is 71 degrees. The record low temperature is
28 degrees, set in 1940. The normal low is 48 degrees for this date.
Today's morning low temperatures was 57 degrees at 5:56 a.m. at McCarran
International Airport. The temperature will climb to 71 degrees by 9 a.m., to 78

Temperatures have been running about 10 to 12 degrees above normal this

notches below the record of 85 for that date.
Well, clearly y'all should be here today.
