The day will be topped off with a total lunar eclipse in the evening, although the National Weather Service is projecting 45 percent cloud cover in Las Vegas.

The eclipse will begin at 7:31 p.m. peak at 9:31 p.m. and end at 11:50 p.m.

A combination of dimness and a low moon will make the total eclipse phase difficult to see in Las Vegas. For the best view, look south-southeast, close to the horizon.

The moon will pass through the Earth’s shadow, and the event will be visible in Africa, Europe, South America and North America.

The Monday low should be around 71 before rising to a high near 99.

Conditions will be nearly identical through Thursday.
