Find some shade and a cool drink -- more hot and sunny weather is sizzling into Las Vegas.

Temperatures will climb to 105 today, 109 on Monday and 107 Tuesday, thanks to high pressure building over the region through Tuesday, according to the National Weather Service.

An area of low pressure will move into the Pacific Northwest at mid week, bringing increasing southwest winds, while knocking temperatures down to seasonal normals by the end of the week, the weather service said.

At 5:56 a.m. today, the temperature at McCarran International Airport was 80 degrees, up from a low of 79 an hour earlier. The normal low for today's date is 75 degrees. The record low was 59 degrees, set in 1941.

Around the valley just before 6 a.m., temperatures were 81 degrees at North Las Vegas Airport, 78 degrees at Nellis Air Force Base and 74 degrees at Henderson Executive Airport.

Temperatures in the valley were to rise today to 89 degrees by 9 a.m., to 100 degrees by noon and reach a high of 105 degrees by 3 p.m., forecasters said. The normal high for today's date is 102 degrees and the record high was 114 degrees, set in 1977 and 1956.

Temperatures are expected to drop to 103 degrees by 6 p.m., to 97 degrees by 9 p.m. and to 90 degrees by midnight, forecasters said.

Monday's morning low will be 83 degrees and Monday's high will climb to 109 degrees, they said.
