Genoa, Nev. — Traffic appears to be moving normally in Carson Valley as road controls have retreated back up to Highway 50 at the Lake. The Nevada Highway Patrol wasn’t reporting any new collisions as of 6 a.m., though that could change as the morning commute starts.

The National Weather Service reported the foothills received 14 inches of snow on Sunday morning. Heavenly Valley’s snow telemetry shows 16 inches fell on the mountain. Wellington got a foot of snow. Alpine Meadows only reported 7 inches.

The snow will see the opening of backyard burning when the weather permits in Carson Valley. You must have a permit to burn, which you can get at or any of the volunteer stations. Remember to call the hotline on the permit before you strike a match to your burn pile.

At 16 degrees we’re not going to see a record low temperature, but we might have had the record lowest high temperature for Nov. 8, which was 37 degrees set in 1946. While not official, the high at the airport only hit 30 degrees on Sunday.

Douglas County reported a half-dozen new coronavirus cases over the weekend bringing the county to 31 active cases. A combined flu clinic and community testing event is 2-4 p.m. Tuesday at the Douglas Community & Senior Center in Gardnerville.

Expect mostly sunny skies and a high temperature near 36 degrees. The wind sill pick up out of the south at 5 mph.
