  Nevada Travel Tip

christmas_scene210.jpg Nevada gets less rainfall than other states, therefore, the skies are usually blue and the sun shines nearly year round. But, despite the low precipitation, melting snow can create havoc. One winter the rivers rose and Reno found itself in several feet of water. We were diverted around the worst sections, however, not before viewing the devastation that rising Truckee River created so suddenly. Heavy thunder storms can also dump a lot of gallons of water in just a few hours.

Generally, the temperatures vary widely in the rectangle state, mainly because of the changes in altitude a desert low of around 1,000 feet and mountains as high as 13,000 feet. In the northern regions winters are quite cold, sometimes dropping to 24 degrees Fahrenheit. In the southern tip, Las Vegas, for example, day temperatures hover around the 50's and 60's in winter and can climb to the 100's in the summer. In the summer months, high altitude desert nights are cool and occasionally the temperature drops 40 degrees in just a few hour.

In the winter season, northern regions are below freezing and snow fall is normal. Most of the almost 50,000 miles of country roads and main highways in the state remain open all year, however, during severe weather conditions, some major highway passes can close because of weather conditions and lesser used interstate roads can shut down for days at a time. Most service stations keep abreast of the road conditions so enquire before setting out.
