7:47 am
pretty dry. not anything all that impactful as compared to what we saw over the weekend. so far today pretty good on the numbers. 22.9 inches of snow recorded at the airport so far. that's a. 8 above average for this time of year, which sits at 14.1. last year at this time only 2.2 inches of snow had been recorded at the airport so far, so doing a lot better than just last year. ryan kern will tell you about some of the numbers from the snowpack survey yesterday in the mountains. 34 and reno-sparks for the high. 20 percent shower chance means isolated to scattered snow showers. a few flakes to some of the floor locations as well. 20 degrees so far in town. cloudy skies reported from the airport in reno.
7:48 am
some warmer temperatures on the way. how warm coming up. back to you. snow levels throughout the sierra above average for this time of year. ryan kern joins us by to show us how this winter is impacting both the mountains and the valley floor. >> reporter: good morning. check out the water levels we are seeing right now. this is flowing down here. normally, this time of year we see this kind of frozen because it is at a standstill and it's cold enough. certainly, not the case in the last storm we got over the weekend. accumulated for 9 percent of the total snow we have throughout the sierra from the entire season. 9 percent. where we are right now is 78 percent of what water officials and hydrologists would like to see come april, so still a pretty good opportunity to hit 100 percent on the year for this snow which would be very good, considering we have been in drought for so long. seeing the snow here, so much of it so far this year.
7:49 am
what we see now. it got hot, so the snow kind of melted off. so it still ended up being a drought year. let's talk about what that means financially. talk about the snow industry. ski resorts up at northstar california yesterday, and at northstar, they got 307 inches total thanks to this last weekend's snow. that's not just from the storm but throughout the entire season but this is why it is significant. that's more than they got any of the last three seasons. in the last three seasons, they weren't able to get 200 inches. it's only january. technically, the storm ended in january and that snow came into 300 plus inches at that point. so it is, certainly, a good year for the ski resorts. northstar being part of the 300 club as are a lot of people.
7:50 am
have a drought year because this is what we saw back in 2013, and it didn't necessarily continue on. officials are optimistic in expecting this to keep going. we'll see what happens. back to you. great news. thank you. if you've been in downtown reno lately, you've probably noticed significant progress on the virginia street bridge set to open in may. the project manager says the road is in the final stage of completion. the video you are looking at is time lapse from the city of reno. basically, a quick snapshot of what the old bridge look like at the beginning of the project to about eight months ago. last month they were able to get road with portions and sidewalk concrete portions poured so no overhead utilities are the main focus this month. the main reason for the project is to improve flood control in downtown reno. all the snow we have been seeing recently as terrific news for the snowpack. actually, it has a downside for drivers dealing with wintry conditions.
7:51 am
for fender bender's. what we need to know about our coverage. >> repr: the nevada division of insurance acts somewhat like a consumer protection division. that means you have a resource if you have been in one of these and can't come to terms on getting your car fixed. the chief of the property and casualty section says if you're not injured, hopefully, you pulled to a safe place and called law enforcement, and then your insurance agent. chance is the next thing that would be helpful is documenting the damage. >> make sure they have responsible videos. >> once your claim is in the works, under nevada law, the clock starts ticking. >> they have of the requirement to reach out to you and make a liability within 30 days. beyond that, the law also allows insurance companies to ask questions or request information .
