New round of snow, rain and wind set for Carson City
This weekend will be a good chance to get outside — WHILE observing social distancing guidelines, of course — but the beginning of the work week will bring the beginning of another storm system, according to the National Weather Service.
Saturday and Sunday are expected to be clear with highs in the mid 50s before snow in the mountains, a mix at lower elevations and strong winds moves in late Sunday.
Snow and rain will continue through Wednesday at least, the NWS said, with snow levels Monday night falling to the Eagle Valley floor.
