LAS VEGAS — Highs reach 103° today with scattered mountain storms having only a 10% chance of reaching valley neighborhoods this afternoon. It will be in the 90s this evening with low temperatures only dropping to the mid 80s by daybreak Thursday. Passing showers or thundershowers are possible through the day tomorrow (including in the morning) as energy pushes from Arizona into Nevada. Muggy weather returns Friday, delivering scattered downpours to the tune of a 40% chance in any one spot. The return of rain chances should limit highs to 100° on Thursday and 97° on Friday. Weekend highs should reach 100° after starting in the 80s. Saturday and Sunday won't be washouts, but each day offers a 20% rain and storm chance as marginal humidity continues. Scattered thundershower chances reach 30% early next week, keeping highs around 97° on Monday and Tuesday. A prolonged ridge of high pressure across the Central U.S. is maintaining the monsoon pattern across the Desert Southwest, and we don't see any signs of that letting up through the end of next week.
