The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory for 2 a.m. to noon Thursday calling for snow to develop early Thursday morning with the heaviest falling in the Reno and Carson City areas between 4 and 8 a.m. Accumulations are forecast to be 1-4 inches.

Five hours of unhealthy air was recorded at the Ranchos Aspen Park air quality monitor operated by the Nevada Department of Environmental Protection. The wind should help clear that out when it picks up around 10.
