First Snow For The Date In Winnemucca Since At least 1877

ELKO, Nev. (AP) — It was less than 1 inch, but the snow that fell in Winnemucca broke a 142-year-old record.

The National Weather Service says the .8 inch recorded Sunday at Winnemucca Airport was the first time it snowed on that date since it started keeping records in 1877.
