LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Parts of the Las Vegas valley are experiencing snow and graupel, the Dippin’ Dots-like winter precipitation that forms when moisture freezes on snowflakes.

13 Action News viewer J sent over some photos of snow and graupel falling at the Orleans hotel-casino around 2:30 p.m.

A 30% chance of passing snow showers continues in the valley through the early evening. It's not enough to stick to the ground, though.

Wednesday morning began with temperatures in the 30s to near 40° with breezes at 10-20 mph at times and a mostly cloudy sky. Temperatures will be in the 40s this morning, with highs hovering near 50° from midday through this afternoon as northwest wind gusts to 25 mph.
