A full-fledged winter storm is in the cards this weekend for the Upper Midwest, while drenching rains will pound the South, threatening localized flooding and tornadoes, forecasters said.
Bitter cold blanketed most of northern Nevada with record lows in some areas a day after a rare snowfall in Las Vegas, forcing the closure of dozens of schools on Friday and delaying the opening of government offices. In northeast Nevada, the temperature dropped to minus 19 degrees Fahrenheit early Friday near Elko in the mountains around Lamoille and minus 14 at Deeth, the National Weather Service said.
