The afternoon high should be close to 98.

The Tuesday morning low will be near 76 before rising to 97 in the afternoon.

Lake Mead steady

Lake Mead was at a depth of 1,044.91 feet above sea level as of 7 p.m. Sunday. That’s 4.20 feet above its summer low of 1,040.71 feet on July 27.

Monsoon runoff and lower demand downstream have helped the lake rise during the last half of summer, a period when it typically stays fairly stagnant.
