Weather Update: Smoky Skies and Extremely Hot Temperatures Dominate Forecast

Smoke, thunderstorms and extremely dangerous temperatures are all in the forecast over the next five days according to the National Weather Service office in Reno this morning.

Forecasters expect that high pressure will strengthen across the Sierra and western Nevada bringing stifling temperatures along with isolated thunderstorms each afternoon and evening all week long.

Potentially record-breaking heat will be the main concern through much of the week until high pressure shifts east Thursday and Friday. Thunderstorms may become more widespread by the weekend.

Here in the Honey Lake Valley we will see temperatures in the upper 90s today and triple digits Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.

Temperatures peak Wednesday

The National Weather Services warns that record-setting maximum temperatures will be possible for many locations by midweek.

“Take necessary precautions to protect yourself and your loved ones from the heat: hydrate often, limit outdoor activities during the peak heat of the day, and never leave pets or children in parked cars.”

The hottest day is forecast to be Wednesday when high temperatures could reach as high as 108 degrees here in the valley.

Moisture and instability begin to build from both intense heating and advection of moisture at the end of the week allowing storm coverage to increase for both Thursday and Friday with temperatures backing off from their record levels.

Smoke in the Air

Residents of the Honey Lake Valley woke to an orange haze Sunday morning as smoke from various fires burning in the region blew into the valley with prevailing winds overnight. There are no new large fires to report.
