High temperatures and lingering chances of thunderstorms are in the forecast for the Las Vegas Valley this week, according to the National Weather Service.
Monday is expected to reach 107 degrees, followed by a 105-degree high on Tuesday. Wednesday through Saturday are also expected to reach 107 before Sunday’s high dips to 106.
A 20 percent chance of storms will linger through Friday, the weather service said.
Some parts of the valley experienced storms on Sunday. One part of the western valley recorded nearly 0.4 inches of rainfall, while another data collection station on the north end of the Strip recorded 0.04 inches of rain, according to the Regional Flood Control District.

The added moisture will help end a recent heat wave, but the humidity in the valley will increase over the next few days, he said.
“So pick your poison,” weather service meteorologist Alex Boothe said.
