615 PM MDT FRI AUG 26 2016
Scattered showers and storms formed over the central mountain
chains and rolled off over the eastern plains this afternoon.
Rainfall totals thus far have ranged from a tenth to three
quarters of an inch at Las Vegas Airport. A few of the stronger
storms have produced pea sized hail. These storms will continue
to push east across the plains and begin to die down after sunset.
Lows overnight will range from the 30s and 40s in the mountains to
50s and 60s along the Rio Grande Valley and eastern plains.
Saturday will again see shower and storm coverage begin their
focus over the central mountain chains, then over the eastern
plains by the evening hours. Highs will be seasonable to just
below average. An increase in rain coverage is forecast by Sunday
and into early next week as monsoonal moisture flow increases.
