The R-C Morning Report

by Kurt Hildebrand

The National Weather Service issued a statement earlier this morning that snow showers were headed south of Interstate 80. More than three hours later, it’s pretty obvious those showers never made it this far south.

The snow showers did leave a collection of road controls north of Carson City in their wake. Road controls start at the Bowers Mansion turnoff on Highway 395 and head north to Bordertown. If you’re driving in the Sierra north of that line, expect some sort of chain controls. For some reason Highway 28 between Spooner Junction and Incline Village is showing closed.

Federal, state and county offices will be closed today for Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday. The Record-Courier will be closed today from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Not much happening in the National Day of Service front. Burlington Coat Factory is hosting a coat drive.

It will be sunny, but cold today with the high climbing to 36 degrees and light winds. The biggest wind gust I saw on the weather service map on Sunday was 50 mph. Meneley Elementary’s weather station recorded a 24 mph gust.
