After dry start to winter, more rain falls in Las Vegas

Las Vegas Valley residents may need to break out their dusty umbrellas this afternoon.

Cloudy morning skies have already produced a light sprinkle of rain in southern Las Vegas and Summerlin and snow on Mount Charleston.

There was a 30 percent chance for more rain in the valley by late afternoon or early evening, National Weather Service meteorologist Ryan Metzger said.

It is the second rain in less than a week after a record-setting, early winter string of 57 dry days.

The drought ended Friday with a sprinkling of rain at McCarran International Airport, the Weather Service’s official recording station.
