It's not often that Sin City is soaked in rain, and it's even rarer that it's dealing with over an inch of it. Las Vegas recorded over an inch of rainfall on Tuesday, making it the wettest day there since September 11th, 2012. That's an over five-year span since Las Vegas has seen so much rainfall. Tuesday's rain total also made it the wettest January day on record in Las Vegas. A little over an inch of rain might not sound like a lot of rain to some, but for Las Vegas, that's about a quarter of their typical annual rainfall. In a full calendar year, Las Vegas averages only 4.19" of rainfall, so over an inch of rain is a big deal for Sin City. It led to widespread flooding throughout the area. https://www.facebook.com/WeatherNation/videos/10156142561304874/ https://twitter.com/NLVFirePIO/status/950792478868852737?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fstorify.com%2FReviewJournal%2Fvegas-rain%2Fembed%3Fheader%3Dfalse%26border%3Dfalse https://twitter.com/johnnykats/status/950788059078934528?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fstorify.com%2FReviewJournal%2Fvegas-rain%2Fembed%3Fheader%3Dfalse%26border%3Dfalse This storm also marked the first time in 116 days, or four months, that Las Vegas recorded any rainfall. The rain, however, should taper down by Wednesday morning, and a much more typical and dry week is in store afterwards. Stay with WeatherNation for the latest on this major storm and its impacts.
