“This June won’t be all warm summer days! After dry and very warm conditions through Wednesday, a change to cooler, windy and wetter weather is expected starting Thursday as a late spring storm moves into the Pacific Northwest and northern California. Gusty winds will continue through Friday, resulting in hazardous conditions on area lakes, with below average temperatures Friday continuing into the weekend. The potential for rain showers will also increase Thursday through Saturday, with the highest chances Thursday night and Friday. Some light snow is even possible above 9000 feet, although significant travel impacts are unlikely.” – NOAA Reno, NV today
