Spring storm brings chilly days to Las Vegas

Updated Friday, May 8, 2015 | 11:08 a.m.

There's a chill creeping into the Las Vegas Valley today and Alaska is to blame.

A low pressure system from the Last Frontier has moved into the valley, the National Weather Service said, and it's threatening to rain on our spring parade.

There's a chance of scattered showers across the valley today, with substantial rainfall more likely in the mountains, meteorologist Andy Gorelow said.

It's also possible the low pressure system will bring scattered hail to Las Vegas and snowfall up to 6 inches in the highest elevations around Red Rock Canyon and Death Valley National Park, the weather service said.

The cold weather is expected to continue through tomorrow as the low pressure system moves towards New Mexico, Gorelow said.

We can expect a high of 63 degrees today and 76 degrees tomorrow, Gorelow said.

Gorelow said the weather will warm up by Sunday, hitting a high of 89 degrees just in time to treat Mom to an outdoor adventure.
