NWS Weather Bulletin: Hot with Thunderstorms into the Weekend

Forecasters from the Reno office of the National Weather Service are saying that a warming trend is expected this week, and while it will be hot, it isn’t too unusual for mid-June.

Highs will run about 5-10 degrees above normal with 90s in the lower valleys and 80s here in the Sierra valleys.

Most areas will see low-to-moderate heat risks for sensitive
populations. Strenuous activities should be reduced, eliminated, or rescheduled to the coolest time of the day.

Individuals at risk should stay in the coolest available place. Make sure to drink plenty of water to stay hydrated. Never leave children or animals in a vehicle.


An increase in thunderstorm chances is expected each afternoon into the weekend. The
thunderstorm threat (15-30% chances) migrates northward into western Nevada, the Sierra, and northeast California Wednesday and Thursday. Isolated chances will continue into the weekend.

Typical westerly breezes with speeds 20-30 mph kick back up Wednesday through the weekend. Low relative humidity may create locally critical fire weather conditions during this time period.
