LAS VEGAS (AP) - The high temperature hit 109 degrees in Las Vegas for the second day in a row on Sunday, setting a record for the date as much of southern Nevada remained under an excessive heat warning.

The National Weather Service said the high temperature Sunday broke the old record of 108 degrees set at McCarran International Airport for the date in 1996.

The 109 on Saturday tied the record for that date set in 1957, and equaled in 1990 and 1996.

The excessive heat warning was scheduled to expire at 8 p.m. Monday in the Las Vegas metropolitan area.

The weather service said Monday’s high should be a few degrees cooler before temperatures heat up again in the middle of the week.
