A few degrees cooler and stiff winds lead the Sunday forecast for the Las Vegas Valley.
The high is projected to be around 107, several degrees short of the 112 record for June 12, set in 1940, says the National Weather Service.
Winds will gust up to 38 mph at Harry Reid International Airport with possibly stronger gusts on the western edge of the valley, meteorologist Chris Outler said.
The @NWSCPC 6-10 day outlook is favoring well above normal precip. chances for all of AZ, with even some chances for southeast NV & far southeastern CA. The details around how much rain we could see and how long we could see it is still uncertain. Stay tuned! #NVwx #CAwx #AZwx pic.twitter.com/w08b4k2t0b
