If you enjoy basking in sweltering summer heat, the next month will be to your liking.
Thursday reached a high of 110 degrees, a single degree shy of the daily record of 111 set in 2002, according to the National Weather Service.
An excessive heat warning that began Wednesday morning will continue through 8 p.m. Friday.
Friday’s forecast high drops to 108 with 105 projected for Saturday and 103 on Sunday.
The valley’s clear skies may see a few clouds on Sunday.
Residents should take precautions such as staying indoors during the hottest part of the day, avoiding strenuous activity, staying hydrated and checking on other people, pets and animals, among other measures.
Above-average temperature conditions in the Las Vegas Valley have a 60 percent chance of continuing through mid-September, according to Trevor Boucher, a meteorologist for the Las Vegas office of the National Weather Service.
“The forecast is for above-average temperatures for four weeks or the foreseeable future,” he said.
There is no indication of any monsoon development in the forecast, Boucher said. The late-summer monsoon season has been one of the weakest ones in recent years.
The coming workweek will start with a high of 105 on Monday and 106 on Tuesday, the weather service said.
