Genoa, Nev. — Highway 50 at Spooner Summit looks like a sledding hill this morning, while Kingsbury Grade is clear. There are road controls on 50 in far northern Douglas County, but none elsewhere this morning.

Most of Western Nevada is the subject of a weather advisory today through early Friday morning with a chance of snow showers pretty much at random. Isolate sow showers are expected in Carson Valley after 1 p.m., and we might even hear some snow thunder.

Daggett Pass at the top of Kingsbury Grade reported 3 inches of snow overnight Tuesday. That jibes with what Heavenly Ski Resort is reporting over the past 24 hours. There were a lot of flurries on Wednesday, but it didn’t stick worth a dang.

Heavenly and Northstar announced they are closing April 18, while Kirkwood is closing on April 11. That’s a week later than they’d originally planned.

We’re looking at colder temperatures for spell to close out the week. It’s 16 degrees out this morning under relatively clear skies. The forecast calls for increasing cloudiness as the next burst arrives. Expect a high temperature of 45 degrees with isolated snow showers this afternoon.
