Don’t let the clouds fool you, it’s still going to be hot

The sweltering temperatures haven’t slowed down as another Sunday sizzled the Las Vegas Valley.

“Don’t let the clouds deceive you,” National Weather Service meteorologist Chris Outler said Sunday morning, projecting that overcast conditions were going to increase humidity and “make things feel uncomfortable.”

And he was right — temperatures peeked at 109 degrees, meteorologist Chris Stachelski later said, or 6 degrees lower than the record high.

Both meteorologists said there was a slight chance of rain on Monday and Tuesday. However, Stachelski said he wasn’t “super optimistic.”

Storms affecting the Mohave Desert were anticipated to bring overnight breezes of 15 to 25 mph Sunday, Stachelski said.

Sunday’s overnight temperatures were not expected to drop below 88 degrees, and the valley will be back at it Monday with a high of 110 degrees, Stachelski said.
