A fast-moving storm hit Las Vegas valley on Monday afternoon.

The storm, which brought rain and hail, was first reported in Boulder City in the local area. It quickly moved through to Henderson and then Las Vegas.

Viewers shared photographs and video of the storm with 13 Action News via its Facebook page.

Such storms are not unusual in the area during monsoon season. The season runs through the end of June until the end of August. However, we usually see the most action in July and August.

The brief storm broke a 63-day streak of no measurable rain in the Las Vegas valley. The storm also resulted in temperatures dropping into the 90s, which broke a 25-day streak of temps 105 degrees or above.
