Las Vegas, NV – In a surprising turn of events, Las Vegas failed to reach 100 degrees on Monday, breaking a long-standing record. According to the National Weather Service, the temperature in Las Vegas peaked at 97 degrees, marking the 291st consecutive day below the scorching triple-digit mark.
This new record surpasses the previous milestone set back in 1964-1965 when Las Vegas experienced 290 consecutive days below 100 degrees. While this may come as a relief to some residents and visitors who prefer milder temperatures, it’s a clear indication that the heat is on the horizon.
Looking ahead, the seven-day forecast shows a potential return to the blistering heat Las Vegas is known for. Thursday holds the possibility of reaching the triple digits once again, with temperatures expected to climb even higher thereafter. By Saturday, the mercury could soar to 108 degrees, and Sunday is anticipated to welcome scorching temperatures of 110 degrees.
As the summer progresses, Las Vegas residents and tourists are advised to stay hydrated, seek shade, and take necessary precautions to protect themselves from the sweltering heat. It’s essential to monitor local weather updates and follow guidance from authorities to ensure everyone’s well-being during these hot summer days.
Stay tuned for further weather updates as Las Vegas prepares for a potential heatwave in the coming days.
