LAS VEGAS (AP) - Forecasters say near-record temperatures are expected in parts of southern Nevada and northern Arizona over the coming days, and they have issued an excessive heat warning through Wednesday night.

The National Weather Service says it was 110 degrees Monday at McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas, just shy of a record for the date. It was 111 degrees in Mesquite, Nevada, which tied a record set in 1992.

The high Monday at Lake Mead was 114 degrees, and it’s predicted to be anywhere from 110 to 113 degrees the next few days. Temperatures normally are just below triple-digits this time of year.

It was 103 degrees Monday in Kingman, Arizona - up from a normal high of about 96.

Forecasters say temperatures should start to drop 3 to 5 degrees around Thursday.
