The Las Vegas Valley ran of luck this Friday the 13th — triple-digit temperatures are back in the forecast this weekend and into next week.
The valley got a brief break from sweltering highs thanks to this year’s first round of monsoon moisture, but temperatures will now rise again, according to the National Weather Service.
