RENO, Nev. (AP) — Much of northern Nevada is bracing for a bitter cold front making its way into the region with a few inches of snow expected from Reno to Elko by Tuesday morning and temperatures dipping into single digits later in the week.
The National Weather Service says the higher elevations could get up to a foot of snow, especially in northeast Nevada. Two to four inches of snow is expected in the valleys around Reno and points east.
A winter weather advisory is in effect through midmorning Tuesday for Elko County, and northern Eureka and Lander counties.
Daytime highs that had been 15 degrees above normal lately will drop as much as 20 degrees below normal around Elko.
Reno's low is forecast to drop to 15 degrees Wednesday, 6 on Thursday.
