The National Weather Service is predicting a nearly 30-degree drop from the weekend to the workweek in Carson City.

Additionally, the capital could see snow on Sunday. In short, if you want to do something this weekend, Saturday is your day. Sunday should be a good day to stay inside and watch an athletic contest on the television if there is one available (check your local listings).
