Winter Storm Brings Snow to Las Vegas Strip

Las Vegas gets hit with second snowstorm in a week. What are the odds

Las Vegas gets hit with second snowstorm in a week. What are the odds

According to National Weather Service records, the snowiest February was in 1939, when 4.1 inches of snow fell.

While Wednesday saw the first measurable amount of snow in Las Vegas since, it wasn't even the first snowstorm this month.

The weather service on Thursday morning said 7.5 inches of snow had fallen in Summerlin, a neighborhood in northwest Las Vegas, by Thursday morning, and reported up to 14 inches of snow in Kingman, Arizona, about 80 miles southeast of Las Vegas. "When it snows in Las Vegas, everyone goes outside and makes snow angels", Lasso said during his slow, 15-mile commute into the city. She said about 100 flights were canceled because of snow and ice.

Outside the city, authorities closed portions of the main routes from Las Vegas to Los Angeles and Phoenix because of snow, ice and limited visibility.

A foot of snow (30 centimeters) was reported in that area at Pioneertown, the National Weather Service said.

This morning's guidance says that the United Kingdom business is expected to achieve an adjusted EBITDA margin in double digits. The company expects to bring in revenue of 130 million pounds to 140 million pounds this year, or $170 million to $183 million.

The California snow arrived with a very cold storm that added even more precipitation in a wet winter that has nearly eliminated drought conditions statewide. Intense snow also forced the closure of schools and businesses in the region.

McCarran airport recorded 3.6 inches (9.1 centimetres) on December 17, 2008.

The U.S. Southwest has seen unusual winter weather, as Las Vegas was coated in a layer of snow.

In the Las Vegas area, motorists are being warned about the possibility of icy road conditions into Friday.

Rain may mix with snow in the Las Vegas metropolitan area, however, meaning much less - if any - will accumulate at the city's most distinguishable landmarks along The Strip.
