SNOW IN MAY? Unusual weather has Mt. Charleston prepping for a snowy Memorial Day

Local News

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. 

A winter weather advisory has been issued for the Sierra, White, and Spring Mountains from 5 a.m. on May 26 through 11 a.m. on May 27 (Memorial Day). The National Weather Service is expecting 2-6″ of snowfall at 7000-feet and 6-12″ at 8,500-feet elevation.
