An excessive-heat warning issued this week has been extended through Saturday as temperatures remain dangerously high across the Las Vegas Valley.

Cooling stations activated throughout Clark County also will remain open through Saturday, county officials said.

Valley residents can expect a slight cooldown once the heat warning expires Saturday.

Sunday and Monday have forecast highs at 108 and 107, respectively, the weather service said, and morning lows in the mid- to upper-80s.

The typical high for this time of year is 104, the weather service said.
