The weather service issued a flood watch that includes Clark County as well as parts of Nye, Lincoln and Esmeralda counties. It runs until 5 a.m. Wednesday.
Give your sprinklers a rest
Because of the rain, water users are encouraged to turn off their sprinkler systems for at least three days.
“This is not only due to the rain, but also higher soil moisture, lower temps, more humidity and shorter days,” said Bronson Mack, spokesman for the Southern Nevada Water Association. “As a result, we can all forgo outdoor landscape irrigation for at least few days, since Mother Nature is already lending a hand. And when you do turn off irrigation systems, you should also change your sprinkler clock to your three assigned watering days to follow the fall watering restrictions, which are in effect through Oct 31, to save water and avoid water waste fines.”
Tuesday was forecast to include a 40 percent chance of rain, light winds and a high near 91. The risk of evening showers will drop to 30 percent.
Wednesday will have a 20 percent chance of rain before skies clear for the rest of the week.
