LAS VEGAS, NV (KXNT) - Las Vegas has gotten a good taste of summer heat over the past couple of days, even though summer doesn't officially begin for another three weeks.

The Excessive Heat Warning that has been in effect since Wednesday morning has one more day to go, expiring Friday night at 8.

Las Vegas hit a high of 108 on Thursday, just one degree away from typing our all-time record.

The normal highs for this time of year are in the low 90s, which we're not expected to see until next weekend.

Clark County has opened up four of their so-called "cooling stations" for those needing shelter from the sun.

Those cooling stations will remain open through Friday, then a Fire Weather Watch goes into effect on Saturday.

The forecast for next week calls for partly to mostly sunny skies with highs in the low to mid 90s each day.
