Mashelle Begovich joined her father Sharkey Begovich in death on Jan. 13, 2020.

Genoa, Nev. — A memorial service is noon Feb. 1 for Mashelle Begovich at St. Gall Catholic Church in Gardnerville. Sharkey’s daughter died Jan. 13, according to her obituary.

A 49 mph wind gust was reported at Minden-Tahoe Airport around 4 a.m., so that part of the forecast definitely came true. The winds are gusting out of the southwest at around 40 mph. There are no reported power outages in the regions so far this morning, but that could change at any time.

A winter weather advisory kicks in noon to 8 p.m. today with a chance of 2-5 inches of snow above 5,000 feet and a half to 2 inches in the Valley. We could see 65 mph wind gusts and blowing snow for this afternoon’s commute, so plan accordingly.

The first radon meeting in Douglas is 6:30 p.m. today in the Genoa Town Hall. The University of Nevada Cooperative Extension will do its presentation and have mitigators handy to talk about fixing radon in your home.

Jim Woods cancelled his program for today. He said it will be rescheduled for February.

We’ve probably already hit the high temperature for the day at 45 degrees. I expect the temperature to drop as the cold front arrives. We’ve got wind all day, so save often. This storm feels like one where the snow portion ends up getting shredded over the Sierra, but you never know.
