LAS VEGAS — The first week of June is off to the warmest start in Las Vegas weather history. And after a few days of slight respite, it’s getting warmer.

The first nine days of June show an average temperature (the average of the low and high each day at the Las Vegas airport) at 93.7 degrees, which is 9.4 degrees warmer than normal, according to National Weather Service meteorologist Ashley Nickerson.

Near-record high temperatures are forecast for the next two days as the second excessive heat warning of the month engulfs the Las Vegas region. The warning runs from 10 a.m. Tuesday to 9 p.m. Wednesday.

High temperatures in Las Vegas are expected to be between 107 and 112 degrees, according to the National Weather Service. Highs of 108 to 113 are forecast for Mesquite, Overton, Laughlin and Bullhead City, Arizona. Furnace Creek in Death Valley National Park will be around 118 for daily highs.

The forecast high for central Las Vegas is 108 on Tuesday and 109 on Wednesday, both just below record highs for the dates.

Overnight lows this week will be around 80 degrees, a temperature that limits overnight cooling.

 

The Monday high at the airport reached 104, compared to a normal of 98 for the date.

Cooling stations open

Because of the excessive heat warning, cooling stations will be activated for daytime hours Tuesday and Wednesday, according to Clark County.

The cooling centers are open to people experiencing homelessness and others in the community in need of cool, indoor spaces for relief from the heat. More information on heat safety tips can be found at: snhd.info/BeatTheHeatSNV.
