Record-breaking heat hanging around Las Vegas Valley

The excessive heat warning ends Wednesday night, but that doesn’t mean the Las Vegas Valley will be cooling down soon.

The record for warmest low temperature was broken Tuesday morning when it got down to only 91 degrees. The previous record for that day was 87 degrees set in 2015, according to the National Weather Service.

Tuesday also broke the high-temperature record. Tuesday’s high was 113 degrees, breaking the 111-degree record high set in 1954, meteorologist Stan Czyzyk said.

Wednesday had a high of 109 degrees, breaking a several-day streak of temperatures of 110 degrees and above, according to the weather service.

Thursday’s forecast high is near 109, Czyzyk said; Friday and Saturday have forecast highs of 108 degrees.

“There’s potential for another excessive heat watch next week,” he said.

Sunday’s high temperature is expected to be 111 degrees.

Rain is unlikely in the coming week, the weather service said.
