An impressive 4.2 inches (10.7 cm) of snow fell near the Nevada-Utah line as a late-winter storm made its way through the Great Basin, breaking a 121-year-old record.
The National Weather Service said Wednesday that the Ely Airport in Nevada’s White Pine County recorded 4.2 inches (10.7 cm) of snowfall on Tuesday, breaking the old record of 4 inches (10 cm) set in 1898.
A winter weather advisory remained in effect until 6 a.m. Thursday for much of north-central Utah and the southern Wasatch Front, where the service said another 1 to 3 inches of snow was expected along the I-15 corridor.
