High pressure and dry air hold to the lower elevations within southern Nevada. Mainly sunny skies will be common through the valley with highs temperatures between 94 and 99 degrees. Winds will be mild between 5 and 15 mph out of the east/northeast. Moving into Red Rock and the Mount Charleston area, clouds will build in with a decent shot for mountain rain and possibly thunder. Between 1PM and 9PM will be our window for rain to the mountains. The rain potential will bleed into Tuesday and fizzle out by Tuesday night.
As we move into mid week, high temperatures sky rocket to what we normally see during the middle of the summer. Low 100s between 100 and 105 will be common Wednesday, Thursday brings in highs between 102 and 107 degrees and Friday into the weekend yields high temperatures between 105 and 110 degrees! As a reminder, we are not in the summer season just yet. June 20th is the beginning of summer and our average temperatures during this time of the year is 93 degrees!
Remember to treat the heat seriously! Wearing the appropriate clothing and colors will help you stay cool along with drinking plenty of water and taking breaks in the shade or within A/C areas.
