The National Weather Service has extended its excessive heat warning for the Las Vegas Valley, as high temperatures are forecast to exceed 110 degrees next week.

The warning now runs until Wednesday, the weather service said, but could last several days longer. Temperatures over the next few days may climb as high as 114 degrees.

The high on Friday should reach 106 degrees, the weather service said, followed by 108 degrees on Saturday, 111 on Sunday and 113 on Monday.

Both Tuesday and Wednesday are forecast to hit 114 degrees, which is about 15 degrees above normal, the National Weather Service said.

The weather service recommends that Electric Daisy Carnival attendees take extra precautions during the heat wave this weekend by staying hydrated, wearing loose clothing and taking advantage of cooling stations.

Cooling stations from Saturday to June 23 will also be available to assist the homeless, Clark County spokesman Dan Kulin said. Locations include community and recreation centers across the valley.

Daytime shelter will be provided to the homeless at Catholic Charities, Salvation Army and Shade Tree, all of which will remain open through Sept. 30.
