The National Weather Service has extended an excessive heat warning through Sunday night, with high temperatures expected to reach 106 to 110 degrees.
Relief from a long week of excessive heat will likely arrive on Labor Day, says the National Weather Service.
Relief could arrive Sunday or Monday, when moisture flowing from the New Mexico area is expected to enter the area, said National Weather Service meteorologist John Adair.
The temperature reached 110 degrees Wednesday in the Las Vegas Valley, tying a record high for the date, and an excessive heat warning was extended into the weekend.
The National Weather Service has issued an excessive heat watch for the Las Vegas Valley that’s effective from Tuesday morning to Wednesday evening.
The National Weather Service forecasts the high temperatures to hover near 106 degrees for the next week.
Temperatures slightly above normal will be accompanied by some gusty winds in the Las Vegas Valley this weekend.
An excessive heat warning for the Las Vegas Valley was canceled early Thursday — not that it will do a lot to change the above-normal heat.
Wednesday reached 109 degrees, and Thursday’s high is set to drop slightly to 106, the National Weather Service said. Thursday is expected to have winds from 15 to 25 mph.
“So far we have not heard from anybody who has specifically seen our balloon,” National Weather Service meteorologist Ashley Wolf said on Tuesday.
