Needles, California: Winter storms overnight brought snow to the near by desert mountains on Tuesday, January 26th, 2021.
ZachNews Photojournalist Zachary Lopez captured on camera these pictures of the snow in the desert mountains just west of the small desert community.
Early Tuesday morning, the National Weather Service in Las Vegas, Nevada told ZachNews that snowflakes may be falling in the higher elevation of the near by desert mountains, but the temperature is too warm for the snowflakes to stick to the ground at the lower elevation.
The National Weather Service in Las Vegas, Nevada also told ZachNews that motorists should drive with caution as roadways in these wet and cold areas may find slick driving conditions, especially driving west, south or east of Needles, California.
According to the National Weather Service in Las Vegas, Nevada, another chance of showers is possible this week, starting Thursday Night and lasting until possibly Friday Night.
