The first snow of this year’s cooler season reached Mount Charleston this afternoon.

Light snow began falling at about 3 p.m., and it is expected to continue through the night, possibly reaching up to 6 inches by early Thursday, according to forecaster Larry Jensen of the National Weather Service.

A winter weather advisory issued by the National Weather Service says a strong low pressure system is traveling across far Southern Nevada overnight, bringing with it snow showers that will reach areas above 7,000 feet.

The advisory remains in effect until 5 a.m. Thursday.
