A storm system off the California coast may bring a few showers to the Las Vegas Valley on Tuesday morning, the National Weather Service said.

The agency said there is a 20 percent chance of light showers early Tuesday morning, with the strongest chance for rain by sunrise. In a tweet, the agency said the showers “may impact the Tuesday morning commute.”

Tuesday’s high should be near 62 with mostly cloudy skies and light winds.

Highs the rest of the week will be in the mid-60s with sunny skies and light winds.

No precipitation has been recorded at Harry Reid International Airport so far in 2022. The norm two weeks into the year is 0.31 of an inch.
