LAS VEGAS (AP) — For a second day, Las Vegas set a record daytime high temperature on Tuesday, reaching 113 degrees.
National Weather Service meteorologist Barry Pierce says that tops the old mark of 111 degrees for the date set in 1954.
It follows Monday’s 115, which broke the record of 113 set in 2015.
Pierce says overnight low temperatures are also setting records.
The overnight low of 91 degrees on Tuesday beat the record of 87 set in in 2015, and marked the earliest date that the nighttime temperature remained above 90 degrees.
Foster says there might be slight relief Thursday and Friday, when high temperatures are forecast between 105 and 110 degrees.
The hot spell isn’t unusual for late June in Las Vegas. In 2013, Sin City sizzled for three days in a row of record high temperatures.
