Las Vegas Valley sees a few showers as monsoon season begins

Updated June 22, 2022 - 8:29 pm

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.

Earlier in the day, the service had issued a flood advisory for the Mojave National Preserve in eastern California and areas surrounding it. The preserve is 70 miles southwest of Las Vegas.

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