GARDNERVILLE, Nev. — All Valley schools are running on normal schedules this morning, but the school district is advising to expect delays at the Foothill area bus stops. The Lake schools are running on main bus stops only and on a 90-minute delay.

Pretty much anywhere you could possibly turn this morning, the road you’re driving on is going to be slick.

Chain or snow tire requirements are in place on Highway 395 from the state line near Topaz to the base of Indian Hills in Minden and on Highway 88 from the state line to the intersection with 395. And over Kingsbury Grade and Spooner Summit. The controls pick back up in Carson City on Highway 395 onto the freeway.

Chains are required on all vehicles except four-wheel drive with snow tires on Highway 88 and 89 in California.

We could see scattered snow showers this morning before 10 a.m., but little to no accumulation is expected. Winds could gust up to 35 mph and daytime highs should climb into the low 40s.

Sunny skies and highs extending into the 50s should return by Wednesday and last through the end of the week. There is a slight chance of rain in the forecast for Tuesday.

We heard reports of anywhere between a couple inches of snow Sunday to more than 17 inches in Topaz Ranch Estates.

We’ll be rounding up a number of stories this morning, so keep an eye out for updates.

That’s a full lid for now. Take care out there, be safe on the roads and have a great day.
