Moist, sticky unstable air, combined with triple-digit temperatures, could brew up scattered showers and thunderstorms this afternoon and evening in the Las Vegas Valley, according to the National Weather Service.
"Possible brief heavy rain may produce isolated flash flooding or urban flooding," the weather service said today in a hazardous weather statement.
The best chances of thunderstorms will be over northern Mohave County, Clark and Lincoln counties and southeast Inyo County, the weather service said.
Today's forecast calls for skies to be partly sunny and temperatures to climb to near 101 degrees today. The chance for precipitation is 20 percent.
Tonight, look for a 20 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms before 11 p.m., with partly cloudy skies and a low around 87 degrees, the weather service said.
