Mount Charleston has received over 12 inches of rain during Southern Nevada’s wettest monsoon season in ten years. On Wednesday alone, the rain gauge closest to the top recorded 1.38 inches.

There is a 30% chance of showers and storms on Thursday, primarily after 9 a.m.

The sky should be largely sunny, with a high of 98 expected. Winds will be light in the morning and rise to 5-11 mph in the afternoon.

The chance of precipitation lowers to 20% in the late hours before a low of 80 degrees on Friday morning.

Friday will be largely clear, with a high around 100 and a low of 79 on Saturday morning. Sunday and Monday are expected to be roughly same.

There will be no precipitation after Thursday, according to the current forecast, which goes through Wednesday.

As of 7 p.m. Wednesday, the lake’s surface was 1,043.43 feet above sea level, an increase of 2.72 feet or 32.64 inches.

According to the Bureau of Reclamation, each inch of increase equals approximately 68,000 acre-feet. One acre-foot equals approximately 326,000 gallons of water.
