What may be the last load of Sierra cement to fall this spring left up to 4 inches in parts of Carson Valley on Wednesday morning.

Johnson Lane weather watcher Don McRoberts reported there was .37 inches of moisture in the heavy wet snow that fell at his home.

There was about 2 inches of snow on the ground north of Genoa by 6 a.m. Snow melted down to slightly more than .3 inches of moisture.

Heavenly Ski Resort reported 5 inches of snow to the National Weather Service on Wednesday morning. Heavenly is scheduled to close on Sunday for the season.

Road controls that were in effect on Kingsbury Grade and over Spooner Summit early Wednesday morning have been lifted.

There’s a chance of scattered rain and snow showers, with a possibility of afternoon thunderstorms today as low pressure lingers over Western Nevada.

Conditions are expected to dry out and warm by Thursday and through the weekend, with another chance of cooler weather and showers next week.

The last precipitation to fall in Minden was March 19 as concerns about dry conditions increased with each day.
