LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Heavy downpours drenched parts of the Las Vegas valley Thursday afternoon. It was the first measurable rain since the end of March.

The areas that received the most rain included the southwest, southeast valley, and Boulder City area which received the most rain recorded at .91. The rain was heavy enough for a flooding advisory to be issued and flights to be delayed at Harry Reid International Airport.

A severe thunderstorm warning was also issued in Clark County east of Henderson Thursday afternoon that expired around 3:30 p.m.

The last official measurable rain in the Las Vegas valley was a tenth of an inch on March 28, 2022. It has been a very dry year. There has only been .17 of an inch for the year. Normally, the valley would have received 2.24 inches of rain by now.

The Southern Nevada Water Authority is urging residents and businesses that benefit from the rain to ease their landscape irrigation for a day or two, as the National Weather Service in Las Vegas is forecasting a chance of showers through Friday evening.
