It was easy to tell that the region got snowfall Sunday morning — just look at the area mountains, which were laced with snow.
Although a mix of light rain and snow was falling around daybreak in the Las Vegas area, there was little or no accumulation in the valley and skies had mostly cleared by mid-morning.
At higher elevations around Mount Charleston, up to 15 inches of snow fell during storm.
Sunday morning, a light mix of snow and rain showers fell across the Las Vegas Valley, extreme Southern Nevada and northwest Arizona, the weather service said. In Las Vegas, temperatures generally stayed above freezing, but areas of heavier snow lead to some light accumulations on grassy surfaces in the valley before 6 a.m.
No hazardous weather is expected for the upcoming week. However, another weak storm will move across the southern Sierra and the northern portion of the Las Vegas region Wednesday and Thursday, resulting in a slight chance of snow showers at higher elevations, forecasters said.
Dry weather will return to the region Friday and Saturday, they said.
The high on Sunday reached 56 degrees in Las Vegas. The normal high for today's date is 66 degrees and the record high was 83 degrees, set in 1986.
Monday's morning low will be about 38 degrees and the high will climb to 63 degrees, forecasters said.
