Las Vegas Is 'Cooling Down' This Week But Triple Digit Temps Are Here To Stay

It's not fall weather but its a bit cooler.

Things are looking a little bit "cooler" for Sin City, but that's not all you can expect. The Las Vegas forecast will still see triple-digit temperatures this week; however, you'll even get a little break from the intense heat. Any reprieve from those 115 F days is a definite improvement, though. 

The National Weather Service tweeted on Tuesday that "Slightly "cooler" temps will be seen today as highs are expected to be closer to normal."

Typically, Las Vegas feels like Death Valley, so a drop in temperature is welcome for residents who want to spend some time outdoors.

Temps are expected to "plummet" to 108 F on Wednesday before warming back up to 110 F on Thursday and Friday.

The National Weather Service reminds people that it's "not as hot, but still hot." 

It is essential to keep water with you and hydrate as often as you can if you plan to be out and about in the scorching heat. 

The week will see mostly sunny skies with a low of 79 F on Tuesday evening, which makes it the perfect time to hit the town for some prime dining under the stars.

According to Accuweather, the record high for July 14 was set in 2003, which saw temperatures reach 114 F.

That makes this 109 F all the more worth celebrating with an ice-cold drink or a dip in the pool. 

If you plan to venture out into the sauna, make sure to wear light clothing and lather up on SPF to protect yourself from harmful UV Rays.

The NWS recommends avoiding caffeine and drinks that are high in sugar and stocking up on water.

But when it's this hot, there's no better time to hit the pool than now.

While temps might be dropping for the week, you can still plan on experiencing some warm days ahead filled with sunshine, triple digits, and bright blue skies.
