JACKPOT • Planning a trip into Nevada Monday? As much as five inches of snow could fall in Jackpot between 5 p.m. Monday and 11 a.m. Tuesday, said Bob Survic, National Weather Service meteorologist in Pocatello. 

A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for northern Elko County, southern Lander and southern Eureka County until Tuesday morning, the NWS reported.

"If we're addressing an area with interstates, like the Jackpot area, we'll issue a weather advisory for people traveling through there," Survic said.

The NWS advises people driving south into Nevada Monday night to be prepared for slippery roads and limited visibilities.

The NWS also issued a Hazardous Weather Outlook for parts of Blaine County where five inches of snow is expected to fall at elevations above 8,000 feet through Wednesday morning, Survic said.

While most of the snowfall is expected at higher elevations, a mix of rain and snow could fall in Hailey, Ketchum and Sun Valley Tuesday night, he said.

"The accumulations for lower elevations will probably only be about an inch or so,” he said. “Ground temperatures are probably still warm so most of it will melt quickly or soak into the ground.”

“Right now we don't have any winter storm advisories out (for Blaine County) because the weather is falling a little short of those conditions. A Hazardous Weather Outlook is a general idea of what's coming, the potential for hazardous weather.”
