Look for increasing clouds and southwest breezes as a system pushes inland off the west coast. There is some rain with it, but it doesn't look like it will save much for southern Nevada by the time it gets here tonight.

Las Vegas MGM Resort properties reopen full time

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) -- Another piece of the Las Vegas economy is reopening. Three MGM Resorts International properties are open full-time again as of Wednesday.

Mandalay Bay, Park MGM, and the Mirage have had some form of a mid-week shutdown for the past several months but will now operate 24/7 which they haven't done in nearly a year.
