LAS VEGAS (KTNV) -- Record heat is expected across much of the Southwest through Labor Day weekend.
A sprawling ridge of high pressure atop Nevada will keep temperatures more than 10° above average on Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday.
An Excessive Heat Warning is in place those days, as highs range from 109° to 111° in Las Vegas, making it dangerous to be outside from late morning through the afternoon.
It will be quite warm at night (for September) with lows in the mid-80s at daybreak.
A drop in temperatures should arrive Tuesday and last a few days as a trough of low pressure moves through the Central Rockies, sending highs back to the 90s here in Southern Nevada.
Due to the Excessive Heat Warning administered by the National Weather Service, day shelters and a limited number of cooling stations will be available throughout Southern Nevada from Sept. 4-7.
