Northern Nevada could be in for some pipe-popping cold at the end of this week.
A strong cold front will move through the region Wednesday night, followed by very cold Arctic air Thursday night and again Saturday night.
Highs could fail to reach freezing from Thursday through the weekend in western Nevada and eastern California, the weather service said on Monday.
In addition, snow was possible Wednesday night through Thursday and extensive snow cover could mean even colder temperatures. Highs
in the teens and lows below zero are possible in the lower valleys Friday and Saturday from California to Utah.
Gusty winds could send wind chills well below zero in the valleys of northern Nevada and in the 30- to 40-degree below zero in the higher elevations of the Sierra.
