    For McCarran...Showers and storms have already begun to
    develop this afternoon over the higher elevations of Clark County.
    The valley is expected to remain dry with low-end chances for any
    gusty, outflow winds making it the terminal. Overall, winds should
    shift more southerly through this evening before drainage winds
    settle in tonight out of the southwest. Saturday looks to be mostly
    dry with light winds following close to typical diurnal trends.
