While the National Weather Service said it was canceling its high wind warning this morning, Carson City should still expect gusts of up to 60 mph and more rain and snow showers throughout the day.

Even if it’s all snow, we’re not going to see anyting stick to the roads,” said Jim Wallmann, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Reno. “It’ll just keep kind of wet. It will remain quite cool, too. It will hover around 40 degrees for the rest of the day.”

Wallmann said the storm system passing through western Nevada should clear up by tonight, but another storm is expected in the region on Sunday night.
