LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

Drier air is in the weekend forecast as a low-pressure system moves out of Southern Nevada after a very wet Friday.

Heavy showers and thunderstorms brought flash flooding across the Las Vegas Valley Friday afternoon. 

Many neighborhoods saw up to a half inch of rainfall in a very short period of time, including Mt. Charleston receiving over two inches.  

A slight chance of showers still remains in the forecast, but if pop-up storms occur they are expected to stay confined to the mountain areas on Saturday and Sunday.

High temperatures are forecasted to be in the low triple digits over the weekend with a gradual warm up into next week.
