LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Between one to two inches of rain have fallen on the northern slopes of the Spring Mountains and that rain is draining into the tiny community of Cold Creek, about a 28-mile drive northwest of Las Vegas.
According to the National Weather Service, the flash flood warning is in effect until 3 p.m. and also includes Lee Canyon Road, or State Route 156, as well as trails in the area, and Willow Creek campground.
There is a 30 to 40% chance of rain in the Las Vegas valley Tuesday afternoon. If it rains as it did on Monday, flooding is expected on some local streets. The valley is under a moderate flood watch until early Wednesday morning.
Flooding can be life-threatening. You should avoid low water crossings and turn around when possible.
