More snow — but just a little — expected

Snow. Again. Possibly.

But not much. Probably.

Carson City could start seeing snow as early as late Friday, according to the National Weather service forecast, but accumulation is predicted to be less than one-half inch through Saturday night.

Scattered or isolated snow showers are possible through the weekend, ending by 9 p.m., on Sunday, according to the NWS. No accumulation is expected Sunday.

Weekend high temperatures are forecast in the low 40s with lows in the low 20s. Monday should be slightly warmer and, by Tuesday, highs are expected to rebound into the 50s.

Friday provided a needed break, with sunny skies and high temperatures reaching the middle 50s helping to dry out the saturated region.

Carson City received 1.69 inches of rain in the storm that ended Thursday night, according to the NWS. Reno received 1.07 inches.
