Rain, wind moving into the Las Vegas Valley

A storm system moving in from California will likely hit the Las Vegas Valley with rain and winds gusting around 15 mph, according to the National Weather Service.

Chris Stumpf, a meteorologist with the service’s Las Vegas office, said the storm could hit around midnight and drag into Wednesday until about 10 a.m. Motorists should be cautious, because the wind could kick up dust and obstruct visibility, he said.

The west side of the valley and Summerlin could see snow flurries, but most of the valley should expect less than a quarter inch of rain, Stumpf said.

Roads could become slick from the rain, but the ground is too warm for snow or ice to accumulate, he said.

“It’s going to feel a little nasty,” he said. “If it were me, I’d dress extra warm.”
