LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Thunderstorms with heavy rain and lightning are moving through the Las Vegas valley Wednesday morning.
The possibility for a few isolated showers could extend through sundown on Wednesday evening. Any storms that linger will have the capability of bringing flooding rain along with very strong gusts.
A flood advisory was in effect earlier in the day, for the southeastern Las Vegas valley including Henderson and Green Valley which has received more than half an inch of rain in some areas. Some lanes on Warm Springs Road are closed due to flooding. The advisory wrapped up at 11 a.m.
The storm has mostly impacted the south and southeast parts of the valley — from Boulder City to Henderson — with rain, lightning, and wind. It was especially intense along U.S. 95 south of Boulder City.
The most rain has been recorded along Nellis Boulevard near Sahara Avenue were .80 of an inch has fallen. The Enterprise, and the north valley have received a quarter inch of rain.
Storm cells also appeared from the southwest valley to the northeast and started to develop in Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area early Wednesday morning.
