MONSOON MOISTURE WILL SPREAD NORTHWARD ACROSS NEVADA THIS WEEKEND,

MONSOON MOISTURE IS EXPECTED ACROSS NEVADA. THE COMBINATION OF
WEAK FLOW IN THE ATMOSPHERE AND HIGH HUMIDITY WILL ALLOW STORMS TO

FLASH FLOODING. FLASH FLOOD WATCHES MAY BE NECESSARY FOR PARTS OF
NEVADA SUNDAY THROUGH TUESDAY. IF OUTDOORS, BE AWARE OF THE
INCREASED RISK OF LIGHTNING SUNDAY AND EARLY NEXT WEEK.
