Gov. Brian Sandoval has ordered flags statewide to fly at half-staff today through sunset on Monday in honor of State Assemblywoman Peggy Pierce who passed away Thursday.
Look for a high of 66 today, and then watch it quickly drop back down to 36 tonight. Best to bundle up for tonight’s football game.
