LAS VEGAS - Las Vegas visitors hoping for a winter wonderland on New Year's Eve are getting plenty of cold but not much of the white stuff.

The National Weather Service reported snow showers and flurries Wednesday morning in parts of the Las Vegas valley but virtually none of it was sticking. Mid-morning weather at McCarran International Airport was 35 degrees, with a wind chill of 28 degrees.

Forecasters said a light dusting of snow was possible in the morning, and they predicted a 20 percent chance of snow in the evening.

About 340,000 people are expected to visit Las Vegas for an elaborate New Year's Eve celebration and fireworks show.

Revelers are advised to bundle up. Overnight temperatures are expected to dip as low as 23 degrees.
