Storms that left flooding, mud could return today

Thunderstorms that caused flash floods and left some roads covered with mud Monday night could make a return appearance today.

More than an inch of rain was dumped on neighborhoods in the southern valley Monday night, according to the National Weather Service.

“We’re probably in for another round today,” said Todd Lericos, a meteorologist with the weather service.

Meteorologists are tracking showers and thunderstorms forming in north Clark and Lincoln counties, as well as storms around Kingman, Ariz.

Las Vegas could see a repeat of Monday night’s thunderstorms when the temperature rises in the afternoon, Lericos said.

The Anthem and Mountain’s Edge communities were hit particularly hard by Monday night’s storms. Mountain’s Edge received an inch of rain, and the intersection of Durango Drive and Blue Diamond Road saw flood waters up to a foot deep, Lericos said.

“That whole southern swathe at the south end of the city is getting some pretty hefty rain,” he said.​
