Warmer, dry days on the way

After a weekend and early week filled with rain and windy conditions the Pahrump Valley is set to see a more stable air mass move in, bringing with it sunny skies and calm conditions.

The cool weather will begin to clear out today, as warmer temps are set to build in the Pahrump area.

“The rainy weather will move out and it will warm up some beginning with Wednesday, reaching a high of 59,” said meteorologist Chris Outler with the National Weather Service.

Temperatures will climb into the 60s by the week’s end, with lows dipping into the mid to upper 30s overnight.

Thursday will see a high of 63 degrees and a low of 35 degrees and Friday will also reach 63 degrees with a low falling to 37 degrees.

A storm system is set to move into Pahrump early next week, with possible precipitation chances making their way back to the valley.

“We’re starting to track a system that could move in Monday, bringing the possibility of rain with it,” Outler said.

The system is in its early stages so the forecast could change as the week progresses.

Environmental consulting group will help water board secure grants for projects

The Nye County Water District has been in operation for more than a decade and while the body has managed to accomplish certain items in that time, much of its duties have gone unmet. This was one of the reasons behind the decision to recall all of the water board’s members in late 2021 and essentially reestablish a new board. That board is now is working to remedy previous issues and one path it is pursuing is additional funding sources that can help expand the water district’s ability to meet its mission statement.
