Crickets On Local Radar

Not Rain

( Las Vegas, NV ) – It’s dry as a bone as southern Nevada bakes under summer-like heat. So what was that showing up on the Las Vegas National Weather Service radar Monday night?


Normally a weather radar screen only lights up with green blobs when there’s rain – blue blobs when it’s snowing. But the local Doppler screen Monday night LOOKED crowded – even without a drop of rain in sight.

The Meteorological experts concluded with comments on their Facebook page that what the radar was seeing were migrating crickets with some having taken to the sky on their way to somewhere outside the scope’s range.

And it’s still dry.
