Light rain falls on Las Vegas Valley; no flood watch in play

It may just be sprinkles, but those light showers and clouds that delivered them have made for a cooler Tuesday in the Las Vegas Valley.

Rain should continue for the next couple of hours, National Weather Service meteorologist Caleb Steele said about 1:30 p.m.

Cloud cover should continue after that, but the likelihood of rain will be spottier.

The high is expected to hit 87.

Precipitation hasn’t been quite enough to register in the rain gauges, Steele said.

Winds on Tuesday afternoon were blowing at a steady 10 mph.

The Las Vegas Valley isn’t under any sort of watch or warning for flash flooding or major storms, Steele said.

Flash flooding killed at least nine people in Hildale, Utah, Monday evening. Four other people were missing.

Hildale is near the Arizona border, about 160 miles northeast of Las Vegas.
