Another 4 to 8 inches (10 to 20 cm) of rain and snow is forecast Wednesday in the Sierra, mostly south of U.S. Interstate 80.

But the National Weather Service says highs in parts of northern Nevada should be pushing 80 degrees (27 C) by Sunday or Monday.
In Las Vegas, highs in the mid-70s (24 C) Wednesday are expected to climb to near 90 (32 C) by the end of the weekend.MORE NEWS: Car Crashes Into Sutter County Home, Catches Fire
