Forecasters are warning Las Vegas residents to be careful venturing outside as the area is expected to see triple-digit temperatures.

Meteorologist Trevor Boucher tells the Las Vegas Review-Journal that people tired of being under coronavirus-driven quarantine may want to go hiking despite the unseasonable heat.
