Las Vegas betting on chance of New Year’s Eve snow
LAS VEGAS (AP) — Las Vegas isn’t a place that expects snow, no less on New Year’s Eve. So with meteorologists at the National Weather Service saying there’s a chance that flurries might rain down on the Strip and the hundreds of thousands of revelers ringing in the New Year, the agency felt it was worth warning visitors: dress warmly and wear comfortable shoes, it’s going to be a cold night.
Organizers of the fireworks show assure that the show will go on, with or without snow.
Forecasts in Las Vegas pin the area’s chances of New Year’s Eve snow at 70 percent, along with a 32-degree Fahrenheit (0-degree Celsius) low.
But for that to happen, meteorologist Chris Stachelski says there needs to be moisture in the air and that’s far from a certainty for the Strip.
