A large ridge of high pressure will send temperatures well above average later this week. 

Highs will climb to 80° on Tuesday and then mid 80s are coming Friday through the weekend. 

Average highs during that part of the month are in the mid 70s, so you may wonder if record high temperatures are in jeopardy. 

Right now it looks unlikely that Las Vegas will break records those days because records are in the low 90s. Plan on temperatures running about 10° warmer-than-normal during that stretch.
