Las Vegas sets record for fifth straight day of 115 degrees Fahrenheit as heat wave continues

Las Vegas was roasted on Wednesday in a fifth consecutive day of record temperatures of 115 degrees Fahrenheit or more amid a prolonged heat wave expected to affect much of the United States through the weekend, the National Weather Service reported.

Temperatures topped 115 degrees Fahrenheit shortly after 1 p.m. at Reid International Airport, breaking the old record of four consecutive days of high temperatures set in July 2005. On Sunday, the heat wave set a record temperature of 120 degrees Fahrenheit in Las Vegas.

Even for the desert, the prolonged heat in Nevada’s largest city is almost unprecedented.

“This is the most extreme heat wave in the history of records in Las Vegas since 1937,” said meteorologist John Adair, a three-decade veteran of the National Weather Service office in Southern Nevada.
