We saw record breaking rainfall yesterday and gusts to 70 mph reported in the evening on the west side of the Las Vegas valley, and we're not done yet. Wind will be the big story today with wind gusts out of the southwest to 50 mph, peaking in the afternoon. A Wind Advisory is in place for much of Clark County and southern Nye County through midnight tonight.
There is a slight chance for rain and mountain snow late this afternoon and into the evening hours for the Spring Mountains and possibly even the west side of the Las Vegas valley.
Saturday will be dry and quiet with highs in them id 50s, still below normal, but Sunday is forecast to be more active. Rain and mountain snow showers are in the forecast, but the snow elevations are expected to be much lower than the previous storm, low enough that we may see snowflakes flying in the Las Vegas valley. No accumulation is expected on the valley floor. There is another chance for rain and snow on Presidents Day on Monday with highs only in the upper40s.
We'll get another brief break from the action on Tuesday before yet another weather maker arrives for Wednesday and Thursday. Temperatures are forecast to be quite chilly all next week.
Have a great Friday!
