For those Las Vegas residents and visitors suffering from the shock of 108 degrees today, shattering the May 19 record temperature of 102 degrees set in 2006, there's hope.
The National Weather Service predicts a high of 105 degrees for Tuesday, but then a major breath of cool air, some 20 degrees cooler.
And although rain is far from certain, weather service forecasters say there is a chance of thunderstorms starting Wednesday night and perhaps continuing through the weekend.
Thunderstorms are not a sure bet in May, the driest month of the year in Southern Nevada, but it's a welcome hope from relief from the intense heat.
