Rain a possibility today as cooler temperatures roll into valley

Be prepared to dust off those umbrellas and spring jackets today as a storm that dumped record levels of rain in Sacramento rolls into the Las Vegas Valley.

The storm from the central California coast, which dumped 1.30 inches of rain on Sacramento on Tuesday, brings with it a 40 percent chance of rain with 25 mph wind gusts and a high temperature of only 59 degrees, National Weather Service meteorologist John Adair said.

There is also a chance for snow in the Spring Mountains at elevations above 4,000 feet; the possibility of snow falling at lower elevations is less pronounced.

The valley is expected to dry out again Thursday with a forecast that calls for sunny skies and a high of 67 degrees, weather officials said.
