Travel Tip: It's Really Hot In Vegas

The National Weather Service extended an excessive heat warning through Thursday as temperatures hovered at 111 degrees and above on Tuesday, roasting the Las Vegas Valley.

Temperatures were expected to remain at 110 degrees or higher through the weekend, meteorologist Brian Fuis said.

Today's temperature could reach 113 or higher. The record for the date is 115 degrees, set in 1939, according to Weather Service records.

No rain is expected to fall during a period when moister air normally flows into Southern Nevada from Mexico, bringing heat-relieving thunderstorms. The monsoon flow is drier this year, but could create dry thunderstorms, Fuis said.

Such parched thunderheads produce lightning, but little if any rain, which could increase the danger of wildland fires, Fuis said.

Death Valley reached 122 degrees Tuesday, but did not beat the record of 128 degrees set in 2003, Fuis said.
