A power outage affected Sunridge and Indian Hills for about four hours on Tuesday. I've contacted NV Energy to see what was going on. Hopefully we'll hear from them today. According to a resident the power came back on at about 4:50 p.m. It dropped off shortly after 1 p.m., trapping one person in an elevator at the medical building on Mica and knocking out the traffic signal at Mica and 395.
Ironically, a cold front will clear out the inversion that has pinned freezing air to the Valley floor. It has already become much warmer with the temperature this morning at 25 degrees double last week's average low of 11.
We should see rain in the Valley starting this afternoon and increasing late tonight. Expect mostly cloudy skies with a temperature of 52. The wind will pick up this afternoon to 10-15 mph, gusting to 25 mph. It looks like we'll get about a tenth of an inch, just enough to slush up the snow pack. The low tonight will remain above freezing.
