UPDATE MAY 10: Las Vegas valley roads are soaked this morning and the clouds will deliver a few additional isolated showers during the morning commute, especially on the west side of the valley and across the Spring Mountains toward Pahrump.

13 Action News Meteorologist Justin Bruce reports that Las Vegas has seen 4.51" so far in 2019. Typically we don't see that much rain in an entire year.

Peeks of sun through the clouds will lift temperatures out of the 50s and through the 60s today, and we'll see highs in the mid 70s this afternoon under partly cloudy conditions.

There's still a chance for passing showers or thundershowers this afternoon and this evening, although the coverage won't be as widespread as last night. Isolated showers and thundershowers are possible on Saturday (mainly in the afternoon) and we'll warm to 80° in most valley neighborhoods.

On Mother's Day, expect a warm-up to the middle 80s. Rain chances will be minimal on Sunday afternoon in the valley, although an isolated shower or thundershower can't be ruled out.

LAS VEGAS (KTNV) -- Rain totals ranged from 0.50" to 0.75" across most of Las Vegas with the bulk of it falling between 10:00 p.m. Thursday and 4:00 a.m.


13 Action News Meteorologist Justin Bruce says Las Vegas will see a return of above-average temperatures for all of next week.
