Temperatures are slowly dropping, though they are expected to stay above 105 degrees through the end of the weekend, according to National Weather Service meteorologist Christ Stachelski. The weekend temperatures of 117 were some of the highest ever in Las Vegas, tying the record set in 2005. (AP Photo/Las Vegas Review-Journal, Jessica Ebelhar)
