LAS VEGAS (KSNV) — Las Vegas, we got snow!
Snow began to fall Wednesday evening and was continuing to fall Thursday morning.
Snow showers will mix with rain and switch over to rain showers from time to time throughout the day in Las Vegas, while areas like Summerlin and Anthem will see mainly snow and could see an additional 1-2" of snow today (on top of what you already have), but most of Las Vegas valley will see an inch or less of new snow accumulation.
The heaviest snow will fall in northwest Arizona with 12"-18" of total accumulation above 4,000 ft in Mohave County.

Total snow accumulations will be anywhere from less than an inch in the central valley up to 5" possible on the far west side of the valley near the mountains.
