The rain, lightning, and thunder has calmed down temporarily around the Las Vegas valley, but you can expect to see a few more showers before the week is over.

Storms will likely redevelop over the mountains around midday today. Storms in Arizona could sneak into Las Vegas this afternoon or evening, but the chance is lower today than yesterday.

Better storm chances arrive on Wednesday, with possible showers in the morning and the afternoon.
