Breezy afternoons this week will be paired with highs near 100 degrees in the Las Vegas Valley.
This week’s triple-digit highs come on the heels of a weekend cold front, which dropped high temperatures into the mid-90s across the valley.
“It was a nice little break, but it can’t last forever,” said National Weather Service meteorologist Ashley Wolf, noting that the average high for this time of the year is about 101.
The week kicked off with a high of 102 on Monday, which should be followed by a high of 101 on Tuesday and highs of 99 Wednesday through Friday, according to the weather service. Overnight lows will be in the low 70s.
Sunny skies and dry conditions are expected throughout the week. Winds gusting up to 25 mph in the afternoons are expected beginning Tuesday.
