It snowed for much of Monday turning Las Vegas into a winter wonderland. Is more snow on the horizon? Be sure to send us your pictures.More>>
It is being called the snowiest December that Las Vegas has ever seen. Officially, 3.6 inches of snow were recorded making it the biggest snowstorm to hit Las Vegas since 1979.
The snow did cause some major problems around the valley bringing traffic to a standstill and causing numerous flight cancellations stranding hundreds of air passengers. Flights resumed Thursday morning. You can check with Flight Tracker for the latest information on flights in and out of McCarran International Airport.
The heavy snow also caused some damage around the valley by snapping trees and collapsing carports.
US-95 is once again open near Searchlight. It was closed Thursday night due to ice.
For the first time since the 1979 storm, The Clark County School District closed all of its schools and Nye County followed suit. Dozens of private schools were also closed.
The winter storm dumped more than a foot of fresh snow at the Las Vegas Ski and Snowboard Resort on Mt. Charleston. Officials recommend chains, snow tires or four-wheel drive when heading up the mountain.
Numerous roads around Southern Nevada were closed to traffic, including I-15 which did not reopen until nearly noon on Thursday. US-95 re-opened to traffic Thursday morning, but was closed again later in the night because of black ice on the road.
While many chose to keep warm inside the hotels, there were a lot of people who took advantage of the rare Las Vegas snow fall -- taking pictures at the famous Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas sign.
An estimated five inches of snow fell on the Strip. Even though it was very cold out, one tourist decided to strip down to his bright red Hawaiian shirt and shorts.
People living in Boulder City also got a good dose of snow. Residents say its been a while since they've seen snow like this. Dozens of drivers had a difficult time with the icy roads in the Henderson area, especially Anthem where some of the heaviest snowfall was recorded.
