Thunderstorms prompt flood advisory for central Clark County

Heavy rain could cause minor flooding on Southern Nevada roadways Wednesday evening, according to the National Weather Service.

Meteorologists issued a flood advisory for central Clark County until 7 p.m. Wednesday. Shortly after 5 p.m., a band of thunderstorms south of Boulder City was moving north to Boulder Beach and Lakeshore Drive.

Heavy rainfall will lead to excess water on roadways and near underpasses. In addition, normally dry washes will see elevated water levels. Authorities urge motorists to avoid patches of standing water.

The weather service predicts a 20 percent chance of thunderstorms Wednesday night in Las Vegas.
