LAS VEGAS — Southwest gusts of 25-30 mph this afternoon as highs return to the upper 90s with a mix of sun and some high clouds. Breezy this evening and tonight with southwest gusts of 20-25 mph and readings in the 80s after sunset before late night lows in the mid 70s. Saturday sees stronger southwest gusts of 30-35 mph alongside mostly cloudy conditions and highs in the mid 90s. The air is dry enough that with the wind today and tomorrow, fire danger is elevated, so a Red Flag Warning is in place. Sunday has a lingering breeze (southwest gusts 25 mph) as increasing sunshine sends highs back up to the upper 90s. Next week delivers the hottest stretch of weather so far this year: expect lots of sun, not too much wind, and highs that climb from near 100° Monday to near 110° by the following weekend (June 11-12). It's important to shift outdoor activities early (or wait until the sun is going down) to beat the heat, in addition to drinking extra water, taking breaks in the air conditioning, avoiding excess caffeine and alcohol, and keeping a close eye on pets, kids, and the elderly when highs head past 105°.
