The Las Vegas Valley is an area of extreme weather conditions. Although the hot, dry climate can on occasion exceed 110 degree temperatures, winters can bring below freezing temperatures. The Las Vegas Valley averages barely over four inches of rain per year. So when it does rain it is a downpour. The desert washes can be dry for years, then a desert monsoon hits and the washes are raging rivers flooding everything in their path. People who have lived in Las Vegas for twenty years of more remember the Charleston Underpass flooded, raging rivers under the Imperial Palace and aerial pictures of the Las Vegas Strip filled with water and abandoned cars. Nowadays flooding like this is unusual.
