The National Weather Service in Reno called for a chance of thunderstorms to develop into the Sierra and western Nevada by Wednesday and Thursday afternoons coming from the Oregon border. A slow cooling trend was slated to begin Monday with temperatures to return to normal for this time of the year beginning Tuesday through Thursday for the West Coast between the 70s to 80s for the Sierra valleys. The NWS reports isolated cells are north of Portola and Gerlach but could change. Lightning that occurs could increase risk of new fire, and thunderstorm potential could remain Wednesday or Thursday.
Another heat wave in Northern Nevada is expected next week but at what rate is unknown for now. Temperatures in the triple digits are expected to return to the lower valleys during the weekend.
