Las Vegas recorded a high temperature of 57 degrees Fahrenheit on Sunday afternoon, but a cold front passed through the area during the evening hours and sent temperatures tumbling into the upper 30s F.
Light snow accompanied the front’s passage through the region, along with gusty winds that whipped the snow through the air.
