Genoa, Nev. — A winter weather advisory has been issued for Western Nevada as snow started falling from a winter storm. We could see up to an inch on the Valley floor and 1-3 inches above 5,000 feet. The advisory expires at 10 a.m. 

A big rig is stuck in a patch of snow near Silver Creek Bridge on Highway 4 in Alpine County after the driver failed to realize that Ebbetts Pass is closed. The tow truck is on its way. Road controls are in effect in the mountains this morning as snow started falling in Carson Valley early this morning.
