Vega$ Rain

Las Vegas averages only 4.14" of rain per year, although February is the "wettest" month climatologically with an average precipitation of a whopping 0.57".  For comparison, the Salt Lake International Airport averages 15.66" annually.

However, a surface cyclone is moving over Vegas this afternoon.

And radar shows some showers just to their west.

So, perhaps a few drops on The Strip.  Of course, what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas, right?  I suspect the folks in western Arizona, where this storm is heading, won't be saying that tonight or tomorrow.
