LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

After last weekend's devastating floods in the northwest Las Vegas Valley, forecasters again warned of the possibility of rising water Friday.

The National Weather Service issued a flash flood watch for most of southern Nevada from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Friday.

The same advisory was also expected to be in effect from Saturday morning through Saturday evening.

According to FOX5 Meteorologist Ted Pretty, light rainfall moved across parts of the Valley on Friday morning, but a break in the rain was expected by early to late afternoon.

Pretty said by the late afternoon showers and thunderstorms are expected, moving in from the northeast. He said the storms could produce gusty winds, downpours and lightning.

Forecasters reminded drivers that it is never safe to drive through water-covered roadways.

On Sunday, torrential rains washed out some roads in northwest Las Vegas. Crews are still working to repair many of those roads.
