I don't think it will have much impact on say the Hoover dam or the Colorado River directly. However SoCal lakes should fill up from it and lakes further north depending on the track.

I did not think of that. I was looking at it. Seems like the snow level is 11k-12K feet. Could be a problem for mountain climbers.

LasVegas weather radar offline after lightning strike Friday evening. Some coverage from other radars but will leave some gaps(these feed your apps too). Airport radar TLAS only provides short range. They’re working on it today but no eta yet.

These ‘little things’ here/there add up over time in large scale weather events.

NWS San Diego shifted their forecast as the track shifted a little more East this morning so update to that wind graphic above. Rain still similar as before but a touch less.
