Pop-up thunderstorms could bring rain, high winds until sunset

Pop-up thunderstorms that are favoring higher ground are bringing a chance of rain and high winds to parts of the Las Vegas Valley, says the National Weather Service.

A weather service tweet at 4:45 p.m. said the storms could bring winds of 30-35 mph.

“They should die off after sunset,” said meteorologist Morgan Stessman.

A brief storm in Centennial Hills dropped 0.04 of an inch of rain near U.S. 95 about 4 p.m.

A thunderstorm warning is in play until 6 p.m. for a stretch from Bullhead City, Arizona, to Cal-Nev-Ari in far southern Clark County.
