Runoff from heavy rainfall this morning and early this afternoon could flood roads in areas of Las Vegas, the National Weather Service says, and ultimately flash-flooding problems could extend into the evening throughout the region

The National Weather Service in Las Vegas at midmorning issued two flood advisories: one in effect through 12:45 p.m. for the northeast valley; the other in effect through 1 p.m. for the north and northwest valley.

Included in the advisory are Sunrise Manor; Summerlin; Floyd Lamb Park; Lone Mountain; Centennial Hills; Sun City Summerlin. Also mentioned in the advisories were areas around Cheyenne and U.S. Highway 95, Ann Road and U.S. 95, Charleston and Nellis boulevards and Boulder Highway north of Flamingo Road;

Because of the seasonal monsoon rains of the past few days and the potential for continued rainfall throughout the day, the National Weather Service also issued a flash flood watch until 9 p.m. for much of southern Nevada, northwest Arizona and the Upper Colorado River Valley in California.

Forecasters said thunderstorms could dump 1 to 2 inches of rain in short periods throughout the day in the three-state region.
