2:15 P.M. UPDATE: Although several neighborhoods saw a little bit of rain early Saturday afternoon, it hasn't rained so far where it counts -- McCarran International Airport!

In addition to rain in many parts of the Las Vegas valley, it has also been snowing on Mount Charleston and at Lee Canyon.

ORIGINAL STORY
Major weather changes are coming to fruition in Southern Nevada this weekend.

A 25 degree drop brings our afternoon temperatures to 61° today and an even cooler 55° on Sunday. Overnight temperatures will tumble into the 40s and 30s.

We also have a chance of seeing our record-shattering dry streak finally come to an end this weekend. After 201 days without measurable rainfall at McCarran International Airport, we have a 20% chance of scattered showers today and 60% of showers Sunday.

A Winter Weather Advisory is in place Sunday morning through Monday morning with 3"-6" of snow possible in elevations above 5,000 feet.

A Wind Advisory is in place for Western Clark County until 9 a.m. Saturday, bringing wind gusts up to 55 mph in areas like Red Rock Canyon and Mount Charleston. Expect southwest winds around 30 mph region-wide on Saturday and 35 mph on Sunday.
