The Fall season has barely shown its true self as winter-like temperatures rear around the corner.
The Reno National Weather Service says temperatures can drop drastically by 15 to 20 degrees with precipitation, dropping snow levels to 5000 feet by this weekend. You can expect freezing temperatures as you head into Saturday night into Sunday morning, with those lower valleys areas seeing temperatures in the teens to 20s overnight.
Now is the time to prepare and cover exposed pipes and drain water irrigation to prevent broken sprinkler heads.
You can expect winds to increase Friday, ushering in the end of the gardening season.
