Remember snow falling on the Strip in 2008? It was nine years ago today that an epic snowstorm struck the Las Vegas Valley, with parts of the valley seeing 10 inches.
McCarran International Airport recorded 3.6 inches, according to the National Weather Service.
The snowfall in the valley was the most since 1979, when 7.8 inches fell in a 48-hour period, beginning Jan. 30. The record was set in January 1949, with 9.7 inches falling over two days, the weather service said.
But don’t expect to see any snow anytime soon in Southern Nevada. The valley is in the middle of a near-record dry streak at 94 days, with no end in sight, the weather service said.
