The Las Vegas valley could be in for more wild weather today.

According to 13 Action News Meteorologist Greg Bennett, there is a 30 to 40 percent chance for showers and thunderstorms until 4 p.m. Friday and 20 to 30 percent chance for activity into the evening and overnight.

Or, there could be no rain at all.

If you have lived in Las Vegas for any length of time, you know that this time of year -- monsoon season -- can be extremely unpredictable.


If the storms do move in again, there is definitely the potential for flooding, pooling, lightning and hail. Just like Thursday.

Chances of rain are much smaller on Saturday, but there is still a chance -- 25 to 30 percent from 11 a.m. until 10 p.m. High temperatures on Saturday will range between 98 and 103 degrees in the valley and it will be a bit windy.


Of course, if it does begin to rain, be safe.

Don't attempt to drive through flooded intersections or high-standing water on the roads, and don't decide it is a good time for a walk along a wash, which can fill up very quickly when it rains in the valley.

As you know, several people had to be rescued on Thursday. Fortunately, no one was seriously injured.

In case you are wondering, there's no reason at this time to worry about rain interfering with any Fourth of July plans.

Sunday is expected to be sunny with a high temp of 109 degrees. It will be also be sunny on Monday and maybe even warmer.
