Weather system brings rain in valley, snow in mountains

Light rain that made its way into Clark County on Saturday night was expected to be short-lived as the weather system moves south of Nevada on Sunday.

The National Weather Service said Las Vegas has a 40 percent chance of picking up rain tonight. Sunday morning will be partly cloudy before mostly sunny skies reach the valley by the afternoon.

Snow was expected in higher elevations in the Spring Mountains. The weather service issued a winter weather advisory in effect until 4 a.m. for the mountains and Sheep Range, where 3 to 6 inches of snow is likely.

The low was expected to tumble to 20 degrees tonight at Mount Charleston with a high of 43 on Sunday.

Temperatures in the Las Vegas Valley will drop to about 46 tonight with the high reaching 63 on Sunday. Highs next week will stay in the low and middle 60s with dry conditions through the weekend.

Weather service records indicate the average high on today's date at McCarran International Airport is 61 degrees.

Records show Las Vegas was dry through this afternoon while Henderson Executive Airport picked up a trace of rain today. Las Vegas officially has recorded 1.28 inches of rain this year.
