Update at 11:00 pm:
Interstate 15 both north and south is closed at Primm. The Nevada Highway Patrol and Caltrans will decide tomorrow morning when to reopen the highway.
The majority of evening and night flights at McCarran International Airport have been canceled leaving travelers scrambling for hotel rooms and trying to make other travel arrangements. The airport will likely reopen in the morning.
All Schools in Clark County will be closed tomorrow (Thursday) with students and teachers getting a rare snow day. However, administrators and support personnel will be expected to report for work
As of now, the snow has stopped and the cold front has moved on. Overnight there may be isolated showers or the occasional snow flurry.
The Vegas Valley goes to sleep tonight under a blanket of snow. Slightly higher temps and patchy sun is forecast for Thursday.
Yes, it is snowing here in Las Vegas (and not just in Summerlin, Spring Valley and at the higher elevations) and it is sticking to the ground.
Here on the eastside of town, near Tropicana and Eastern, we are enjoying one of the rarest sights in Las Vegas, snowfall.
"Oh the weather outside is frightful"
"And the fire is so delightful"
"And since we've no place to go"
"LET IT SNOW, LET IT SNOW, LET IT SNOW"
It probably won't last overnight but for now we are enjoying it!
