SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Snow fell overnight in areas of San Francisco for the first time in 35 years, the Weather Channel reported on Saturday.

Trained spotters also reported snow in the San Joaquin Valley of California, according to the National Weather Service.

The storm system that could bring snow to Los Angeles and Las Vegas on Saturday is expected to move across Nevada and Utah with snow reaching Arizona, Colorado and northern New Mexico later this evening, said meteorologist Heather Buchman in an online report.

In addition to the rare snowfall event, record low temperatures could hit California in the morning hours over the next few days, said Weather Channel meteorologist Chris Dolce.
