Excessive heat warning ends; gusts expected in Las Vegas Valley

Updated August 22, 2019 - 9:34 pm

A three-day excessive heat warning expired Thursday, but above-normal temperatures are expected to continue into early next week in the Las Vegas Valley.

Temperatures reached 106 on Thursday, but the excessive heat warning was canceled before the planned 8 p.m. expiration, said weather service meteorologist Jen Varian.

“The heat will just have a bit less of an impact today,” she said Thursday morning.

Friday should have sunny skies and a high of 103. Winds could reach 20 to 25 mph in the afternoon.

Highs are expected to be 103 for Saturday and 105 on Sunday. Monday will see a high of 106, and temperatures will climb to 107 on Tuesday, the weather service said.

Overnight lows are expected to be around 80, and no rain is in the forecast Friday through Tuesday.

There’s a slight chance for monsoons during the middle to end of next week, meteorologist Trevor Boucher said.
