Not as hot to start the work week thanks to a storm system passing through the Great Basin. It will be brief as temperatures start to warm Wednesday. #nvwx #azwx #cawx pic.twitter.com/lqZ9IExNtP

Monsoons have occurred with less regularity in the Las Vegas region over the past several summers, but can generate flash flooding with potentially deadly consequences. The biggest risk for monsoons runs from June 15 to Sept. 30.
