Second snowfall in Las Vegas this month

It snowed in Las Vegas on Sunday night for the third time this winter.

19 Feb 2019 – It is uncommon for snowfall to be as widespread as it was in Las Vegas valley, said National Weather Service meteorologist Chris Outler.

Some parts of Summerlin got 2.5 inches, while Mt Charleston got more than 3.5 inches. The ski resort on Mt Charleston – which is within the Las Vegas city limits – has all 26 of its trails open.

There is a good chance of more snow for Thursday, said Outler.

Multiple snow days in February are rare. Only twice since 1939 has Las Vegas seen more than three February snowfall days – the last time in 1949.
