Officials said very heavy rainfall could bring more than two inches of rain per hour, which could flood local washes and drainage areas.

The downpours could also turn into rapidly flowing water that can move mud and rocks onto the roads, creating driving hazards.

Flood warnings have hit the Las Vegas area on and off for the past week, though no substantial damages or losses have been reported.
