RENO, Nev. (AP) - Some northern Nevada schools delayed openings and others remained closed while workers dig out from heavy snow that fell during storms this week.

But the Reno area is getting a break Friday from wet weather that also brought flooding last weekend.

National Weather Service meteorologist Brian O’Hara tells the Reno Gazette-Journal (https://on.rgj.com/2jfVVJn ) that skies are clearing and it’ll be dry and sunny through the weekend.

Officials say skiers welcomed several inches of fresh powder at areas in the Sierra Nevada.

Four inches fell Thursday in areas south of Reno, an about eight inches near Gardnerville.

O’Hara says another storm next week could bring feet of snow to the mountains and a few inches at lower elevations and valleys.

But he says Truckee River water levels should continue to drop.
