LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Memorial Day Weekend is usually the official kick-off for Las Vegas pool parties, but this year a short drive can give people an entirely different experience.
Those who originally planned on beating the heat by camping on the mountain may now be in for an added treat – snow.
Late season snow on a long holiday weekend may catch some by surprise. This will likely cause significant impacts to those recreating above 7000′. May be wise to check road conditions before heading out. #azwx #cawx #nvwx @InyoInfo @HumboldtToiyabe pic.twitter.com/FSpZGkW4Oc— NWS Las Vegas (@NWSVegas) May 25, 2019
