We caught up with the National Weather Service (NWS) office in Las Vegas, Nevada as its team of meteorologists aims to get the message out before Rosa arrives. Joining us Saturday was Meteorologist Chris Outler, one of the senior forecasters at NWS Las Vegas. We asked him about the timing of the heaviest rain. https://twitter.com/WeatherNation/status/1046218281713958912 Feel free to play the video above (and below) to listen and watch the interview. We also asked Chris about what the local office is urging residents to do before the storm hits. https://twitter.com/WeatherNation/status/1046220353997950976 Rosa began the weekend as a Category 2 hurricane according to the Saffir-Simpson Scale.
