LAS VEGAS — It's in the mid 90s (with humidity and sunshine) at midday and afternoon highs will approach 100° with southwest winds of 15-25 mph. There's a 30% rain and storm chance this afternoon, and any showers could produce lightning, localized downpours, and strong gusts of wind. The chance is 50% in Boulder City and Lake Mead. Any thundershowers will fizzle quickly this evening and the sky tonight turns clear with temperatures dropping to 80° by daybreak tomorrow. Friday is dry and 103°, and the weekend sees highs near 105° each afternoon. Next week is also around 105° each day, with humidity picking back up starting Monday, setting the stage for small afternoon rain and storm chances next week. The marginal mugginess will make the heat feel worse than if it were dry. Nighttime lows won't cool off too much, only dipping to the low and mid 80s. To beat the heat, it's important to shift outdoor activities to the early morning (or wait until the sun is going down), 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.
