March’s record-breaking heat continued Sunday in the Las Vegas Valley.
The valley hit another record high, 90 degrees, which brings the total daily record highs for the month to four, the National Weather Service said.
Sunday’s high beat the record for March 19 set in 1939 by 2 degrees, meteorologist Jim Harrison said.
The record high follows another record set on Saturday, Harrison said. The last time the valley saw two record highs in a row was in November 2016. The other two records this month occurred on Wednesday and March 12, he said.
Starting Monday, temperatures will begin to fall, and by the end of the week the valley will return to normal spring temperatures and even the possibility of rain mid-week, the weather service said.
Monday will start out cloudy and should reach a high of 85 degrees. Tuesday should cool down to 78. The weather service has forecast a 30 percent chance for rain on Wednesday and a high of 73. That chance for rain might continue through Thursday morning.
Average temperatures for this time of year are in the low 70s, the weather service said.
