Blistering Saturday temps connect record high

Saturday, June 24, 2017|8:39 p.m.

Saturday was another record-tying scorcher for the Las Vegas Valley.

The 113 degrees reached at McCarran International Airport tied the record high for a June 24 embeded in 1961, National Weather condition Service meteorologist Alex Boothe said.

It shouldn’t be this hot this time of year. In reality, typical conditions for late June hover around the 102-degrees mark, he said.

Fortunately is relief is coming in the coming days– if that’s exactly what 100-plus-degrees days can be considered.

However first there’s Sunday, which is predicted to be 112 degrees, Boothe said. And Monday, with a projection of 109 degrees, which will flirt with another stunning 1961 record: 10 straight days of temperature levels increasing above 110, inning accordance with the weather condition service.

That relief pointed out above? The heat might not increase above 105 on Tuesday; 104 on Wednesday, and 103 from Thursday to Saturday, Boothe said.

If you’re eagerly waiting on showers, this coming week is not the one, Boothe stated.
