– Death Valley has one more winter than expected, and it’s going to be the toughest on anyone.
Campers can expect the heat and dust of the summer to reach their campgrounds in Nevada.
The cold air is expected to keep most people indoors, and that means more snow for most.
But in a year where wildfires, drought and more have all contributed to some of the harshest winter conditions on record, it’s worth remembering the best camping conditions in the West are right in the foothills.
While the conditions in Nevada are expected to be similar to last year, this year’s conditions will be much worse, according to a forecast released Wednesday by the National Weather Service.
The weather service predicts that from Monday through Thursday, temperatures will dip below freezing at a rate of 5 degrees Celsius (10.3 degrees Fahrenheit).
That means it’s the hottest temperatures in the area in years, and if you’ve been planning a visit to Death Valley, it might be a good idea to do so before the temperatures drop below zero.
A lot of the areas that will see the hottest conditions are already covered by snow.
The National Weather Services has issued a winter storm warning for parts of Nevada, Arizona, California, Nevada and Utah.
Snowfall totals in most of the area will likely top 1 foot, the agency said.
In the northern part of the state, that’s more than 2 feet.
Snowfall totals are expected in the southern half of the country, with snowfall totals ranging from 0.7 to 2.1 feet.
