After record-breaking rainfall over the weekend, Las Vegas Valley residents can look forward to a warmer, drier week, according to the National Weather Service.
The first outer rain bands from a powerful Pacific storm headed to Northern California on Sunday brought light rain and wind and renewed warnings of possible flooding in the already soggy region.
The Las Vegas Valley broke the record for daily rainfall Saturday, the National Weather Service said. Meteorologist Stan Czyzyk said the valley recorded 0.43 inches of rain by 8 p.m. Saturday, breaking the 2005 mark for the date.
A huge Pacific storm that parked itself over Southern California and unloaded, ravaging roads, opening sinkholes and leading to the deaths of at least two people, eased off Saturday but it was only a temporary reprieve as new storms took aim farther north.
