The official first day of summer is still three weeks away, but the Las Vegas Valley already is starting to heat up.
The valley will see near-record temperatures over the weekend, according to the National Weather Service.
Friday will start out with breezy winds and a morning low near 70 degrees. Friday’s high should be 94, which is just about average for this time of year.
Saturday will see a high of 101, the weather service said, and Sunday will reach 104, just 3 degrees short of the previous record for the day.
Next week will kick off with a high of 106 degrees on Monday, before the valley heads into a short cooling trend, the weather service said.
