Rain has, for the most part, tapered off in the valley and dinner guests of tonight’s Titanic 100th anniversary event at Lake Las Vegas shouldn’t fret about a storm, according weather service officials.
“Most of the heaviest rain throughout the valley has ended,” said Chris Stachelski, meteorologist with the National Weather Service.
The average rainfall for the valley was .01 of an inch, he said.
Areas of the southeast, including downtown Henderson and Lake Las Vegas, received the most moisture with about a quarter inch of rain, he said.
At Mount Charleston, 5 inches of snow fell, Stachelski said. Those looking for some recreation should keep in mind that the Las Vegas Ski & Snowboard Resort has closed for the season.
Friday’s high was 67 and the low was 47 at McCarran International Airport, he said. Wind gusts as of 43 mph were recorded at the airport.
Stachelski said the low Saturday morning was 44 degrees and the high is predicted to be 58 with winds around 10 mph.
For Sunday, expect sunshine, a low of 47 and a high around 70, said Stachelski, adding that warmer weather is forecasted for next week.
