The Las Vegas valley saw a second day of record rainfall Sunday, according to the National Weather Service.
Record rainfall for Sunday’s date totaled 0.14 inches, breaking the previous daily rainfall record for April 10 — 0.13 — set in 1943, meteorologist Chris Outler said.
The valley also broke the previous daily rainfall record for April 9 — also set in 1943 — with 0.8 inches falling Saturday. That was the third-highest amount ever to fall on a single day in April.
The valley’s rainiest month is February, but April outshined it this year, Outler said.
Sunday’s high was 62 degrees, with a low of 52, he said.
The rain and chilly weather will start to let up Monday, with a high of 71 degrees, a low of 55 degrees and only a 30 percent chance of showers.
Tuesday is expected to be partly cloudy with a high of 78 degrees, and Wednesday is expected to see a high of 81, he said. Both days should be warm and dry.
Thursday is expected to be partly cloudy, with a high of 76 degrees and a low of 57 degrees, Outler said.
No rain and mostly sunny skies are expected for the weekend, he said.
Sunday’s rain also washed out plans for a doubleheader between the Las Vegas 51s and the Fresno Grizzlies. The teams were were supposed to play two seven-inning games on Sunday after also getting rained out Saturday.
The 51s have yet to announce specific dates for makeup games.
