LAS VEGAS, NV (KXNT) - While the Las Vegas Valley has avoided (so far) a long run of temperatures over 110 this summer, we're going to see near record heat for the rest of the week, with plenty of breezes to make it a "blow-dryer" type of stretch.

Drier conditions mean hotter temps so watch out Wed/Thu if you're going to be outdoors! #vegasweather pic.twitter.com/p9gS5Tjefq— NWS Las Vegas (@NWSVegas) August 13, 2019

The National Weather Service has issued an Excessive Heat Watch for Las Vegas that runs through Friday night at 8. 

In response to the heat, Clark County will be opening several other "cooling stations" in the addition to the ones already in operation.

Temps around the Valley are expect to hit 110 the next couple of days before cooling off a bit for the weekend.

We're still in monsoon season, but there's no rain in the forecast, so while temps are rising, it's a dry heat. 

Breezy conditions will go along with the high temps, with the windiest conditions forecast for Friday.
