Bundle up! New Year’s Eve will be windy, cold

December 29, 2018

Lake Havasu City is in for near-freezing temperatures this New Year’s Eve, with chills predicted at about 35 degrees Monday night.

Daytime highs Monday and Tuesday afternoon are expected to hover at about 54 degrees, according to the National Weather Service’s extended forecast.

“It’s definitely going to cool off throughout New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day,” said National Weather Service meteorologist Ashley Wolf. “People who plan to go outside should definitely bundle up. Monday and Tuesday might be a little breezy, with a northern wind and 25 mile-per-hour gusts. The wind should subside later in the evening, but it’s going to make it feel a little cooler than the outside temperature would normally feel.”

While Havasu residents saw snowfall on New Year’s Eve in 2014, Wolf says temperatures this Jan. 1 will be dry, with no precipitation expected.

This weekend, strong winds throughout Western Arizona and California could pose a potential hazard to motorists on State Route 95, according to the National Weather Service, with gusts of 30 to 40 miles per hour expected throughout Saturday.
