Monday’s winter storm brought only traces of rain over the Las Vegas Valley, but Mount Charleston got a few inches of snow, according to the National Weather Service.

There was no measurable rain at McCarran International Airport or in Henderson or North Las Vegas on Monday at 6.45pm, said meteorologist Jenn Varian. Mount Charleston had received about 2 inches of snow.

In Las Vegas Monday hit a high of 53 degrees and the night low is forecast at 38, Varian said. Although there is a slight chance of residual sprinkles through the night, the winter storm should be through by the end of the night.

The daily highs are expected to remain in the low 50s this week. Tuesday is forecast at 56 and sunny, Wednesday and Thursday will be 54 and mostly sunny, and Friday will be 56 and sunny. The midnight temperature on New Year’s Eve is forecast at 41, Varian said.
