A few monsoonal showers got the streets wet — and not much else — across parts of the Las Vegas Valley on Wednesday.
The National Weather Service said there is a small chance for more light showers to fall Thursday. The monsoon season for the valley officially started June 15.

Not much, but some is better than none. The rain ☔️ has arrived in downtown Las #Vegas at our #ClarkCounty Government Ctr. Enough to wet the pavement and give a little drink to the amphitheater grass. #VegasWeather pic.twitter.com/YmOYlq7l49

Wednesday was the first day the Las Vegas area has experienced precipitation since March 28, according to data from the weather service.
