The Las Vegas Valley will warm up into three-digit temperature highs until a slight cooling down period toward the weekend, according to the National Weather Service.
Monday reached 95 degrees with mostly sunny skies. The low for Monday night will be 74 degrees, according to the weather service.
Temperatures are expected to hit near 100 degrees on Tuesday and Wednesday. This is slightly above the normal low-90s, the weather service said.
Winds beginning Wednesday will “kick up with breezy conditions but nothing too extreme,” meteorologist John Adair said. Afternoon winds Wednesday and Thursday are expected to reach between 10 and 25 mph.
Thursday’s 94-degree high will be followed by temperatures “near normal,” Adair said. Friday and Saturday will be 89 degrees and Sunday is expected to reach a high of 93 degrees.
Sunny skies are expected all week.
“It’s looking like a pretty good dry-weather pattern going into Memorial Day weekend,” Adair said.
