More wild and wet weather headed to Southern Nevada

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- More wild weather could be headed to the Las Vegas Valley this weekend.

The National Weather Service issued a flash flood watch for all of Southern Nevada from late Saturday night until Monday evening.

Parts of Arizona and California may also be affected.

The current forecast says there is a 20 percent of rain Friday; 20 to 30 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms on Saturday; a 70 percent of storms on Sunday; and a 50 percent chance of more rain on Monday.

The rain is expected to end on Tuesday although there will still be a slight chance of showers for a couple more days.

The rain is a result of a tropical depression that is currently gathering strength over the Baja Peninsula.

If there is a significant amount of rain, flash flooding will likely happen in low-lying areas and on Valley roads.

The latest forecasts and information on any watches or warnings can be found here.
