LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — An upper level area of low pressure is delivering scattered showers to Southern Nevada this morning, and a final piece of energy will swing through Las Vegas this afternoon and evening, so a few more showers and thundershowers are possible then.
This is unusual for April, which is typically one of the driest months of the year in Las Vegas.
On Monday at McCarran International Airport we observed 0.20" of rain, which bested the old record for the date of 0.18" set in 1990.
Mammatus clouds from late Monday. Thanks, Jose! https://t.co/nJulLnbQYW
