LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — An Excessive Heat Warning that was supposed to expire on Wednesday has been extended through Thursday at 9 p.m.
The Las Vegas area is experiencing above-average temperatures, which are closer to record values than averages.
Remember to drink plenty of water, apply sunscreen and stay indoors as much as possible.
Wednesday night stays warm and hazy with overnight lows in the 80s ahead of sunrise Thursday.
A shift in wind direction out of the southeast will deliver an uptick in humidity, aiding in the development of a few spotty storms across the region with chances near 10% in the valley and 40% in the mountains.
The increase in moisture produces a few clouds both Thursday and Friday with highs falling from 108º Wednesday, to 106º Thursday, and 103º on Friday.
We're back to clear, sunny skies Saturday and Sunday as the humidity dries with highs 102º-104º this weekend.
A breezy wind arrives early next week as a trough of low-pressure swings through, this should help to drop highs closer to 100º by the end of next week.
