LAS VEGAS (KSNV & MyNews3.com) -- The National Weather Service has dropped a flash flood warning that was issued earlier Saturday afternoon for parts of Mount Charleston and northwest Las Vegas.

The National Weather Service had issued a flash flood warning until 4:45 pm for the following areas: Kyle Canyon Campground, Mary Jane Falls Campground, Harris Springs Canyon, Kyle Canyon, Kyle Canyon Wash, Centennial Hills, State Route 157 and U.S. 95.

Heavy rain was reported to be falling on the Carpenter One burn area, but the anticipated rainfall apparently did not become heavy enough to cause flooding issues as of 4:30 p.m.

The warning was dropped, but a flash flood watch does remain in effect for all of Clark County and southern Nye County through Monday evening.

The watch also includes northwest Arizona and parts of Southern California.

Clark County and northwest Arizona are especially susceptible to flash flooding because of recent forest fires that burned thousands of acres.
