LAS VEGAS (AP) — Temperatures are on the rise again in Las Vegas after the city reported a record overnight low of 89 degrees on Sunday.
National Weather Service forecaster Dan Berc (burk) says the reading tied the city’s record highest minimum temperature for the date set in 2009 and 1994.
With the temperature at 111 degrees early Sunday afternoon, Berc says Las Vegas could still break its all-time record high of 117 degrees set in 2005 and 1942. Forecasters are calling for the high to reach 116 degrees.
A man died and another was hospitalized in serious condition Saturday in Las Vegas heat-aggravated incidents as the temperature soared to 115 degrees.
Las Vegas fire and rescue spokesman Tim Szymanski says paramedics responded to 28 calls Saturday from people needing medical assistance because of the heat. Of those, 10 were sent to the hospital.
