Douglas County commissioners have set aside 30 minutes today to discuss if a rehearing of their decision on Valley Christian Fellowship is warranted. Planning Commissioners rejected the church, but county commissioners approved at their Dec. 4 meeting. They'll also discuss consolidating the enterprise funds and implementing new water meters for the county's utilities. Commissioners meet at the Stateline Transportation Center starting at 1:30 p.m. They'll be holding a workshop starting at 9 a.m. today.
The National Weather Service issued a winter weather advisory at 4:21 a.m. this morning for a cold low pressure system that is expected to drop south into Nevada tonight and Friday. Forecasters believe the storm will bring snow accumulations of 2-4 inches and winds of 45 mph to parts of Nevada. Expect the roads to be slick for the Friday morning commute.
This morning the forecast calls for a few patches of freezing fog, though I'm not seeing any in the Valley. The chance of snow increases after 10 a.m. and just climbs from there. It will be mostly cloudy with a high just above freezing with a 15 mph breeze gusting up to 25 mph. Like the last storm, this one's rolling in under cover of darkness. It's 4 degrees in Genoa. I can guarantee that means negative numbers down by the river. My car read 2 degrees at the Genoa Lane bridge last night.
