Rare Snowfall Strikes Las Vegas

When it comes to weather, Las Vegas is known for its blistering summertime heat. But this week, Las Vegas was treated to a rare bout of snowfall Sunday night into Monday morning. While only a trace was reported at McCarron Airport, parts of the city received 1.5 to 2 inches of snowfall. Even more snowfall fell just outside of Las Vegas, with Mount Charleston measuring 3.5 inches of snow. It was the largest snowfall in the region since December 2008. Snow and ice closed a section of Interstate 15 in Nevada on Monday morning.
