Yes, that is snow. In the desert. On my way to a live location this morning for team weather coverage. I can't imagine what I'm going to see, but you can see it with me this morning.

Rain showers arrived in the Las Vegas valley Sunday.

Showers were becoming more widespread as the afternoon continued and were expected to remain steady throughout the night.


Thunder and lightning was associated with some storms around the valley with a tree being struck by lightning at the Las Vegas Country Club where a house also caught fire.

The fire was reported around 2:50 p.m. in the 1100 block of Pinehurst Drive. Firefighters determined the cause of the fire was a lightning strike to a tree adjacent to the building and then spreading to the wood shake shingle roof.

The fire was contained to the one home with damages estimated at $200,000.

No occupants were home at the time but firefighters rescued two cats. There was a minor eye injury to a firefighter.

A severe thunderstorm warning was issued for northeastern Clark County from 3:42 p.m. to 4:30 p.m., including Overton, Moapa Valley, Valley of Fire and Logandale.

The thunderstorm brought flooding near Overton.
