Oppressive heat and brisk winds will continue in the Las Vegas Valley on Monday.
“It will still be hot, hot, hot; about 110 instead of 113,” National Weather Service meteorologist Clay Morgan said of the projected high for Monday after the 113 registered on Sunday.
Just before 6 a.m. Monday, the temperature at McCarran International Airport was 93.
The excessive heat warning for the region remains in place until 8 p.m. Monday.
No high temperature records are expected to be reached. The Las Vegas record for July 13 is 115 set in 1939. The Death Valley record for the date is 131 set in 1913 and Monday’s high is forecast to be 123.
Winds on Monday will range from a steady 10 to 17 mph with gusts up to 30 mph in the afternoon, Morgan said.
After Monday, the daily high is forecast to be around 107 all week.
