Moisture moves on, Las Vegas Valley continues to bake

Updated August 17, 2018 - 10:28 pm

The Las Vegas Valley will heat up over the weekend as the valley briefly dries out.

Friday topped out at 104 degrees, and the rise is set to begin Saturday with a high of 107, according to the National Weather Service. Sunday’s morning low should be 85, and the high for the day should reach 109.

“Gonna be hot,” meteorologist Chelsea Kryston said.

Those trying to escape the heat this weekend don’t need to look too far. Despite a recent round of thunderstorms, Mount Charleston will stay dry and mostly sunny on Saturday and Sunday with highs in the low 80s, the weather service said.

If 109 isn’t hot enough for you, Death Valley’s high could reach 119 on Sunday.

Monday’s high should reach also reach 109, the weather service said, before temperatures drop again. Tuesday’s forecast has a high of 102, and Wednesday’s high should fall to 101. Temperatures will slightly rebound with a forecast high of 102 on Thursday.

There is a 10 percent chance for storms in the Las Vegas Valley Monday morning through Thursday evening, Kryston said.
