LAS VEGAS (AP) — Tourists may see snow flurries on the Las Vegas Strip this weekend, but a forecaster says measurable snow isn't likely near casino marquees in southern Nevada.

National Weather Service meteorologist Clay Morgan said Friday that trace accumulations are possible Saturday afternoon in hillside neighborhoods north and west of downtown Sin City.

Mountains could get up to 4 inches of new snow at elevations above 3,000 feet.

Morgan says a teeth-chattering chill is expected to settle into southern Nevada after the quick-moving storm sweeps through.

He says some forecasts put temperatures in the mid-teens early Tuesday.

Snow showers were last seen on the Strip last Jan. 28 and Dec. 26.

A winter storm in mid-December 2008 left more than 3 inches at the official measuring station at McCarran International Airport.
