Tahoe/Truckee weather: Scattered thunderstorms possible all week

TAHOE/TRUCKEE, Calif. — Regional fire officials figure to be on alert this week as hot weather and chances for thunderstorms dominate the forecast into the weekend, according to the National Weather Service in Reno.

While no storm warnings or weather hazards are in effect as of Monday morning, there is a 20 percent to 30 percent chance of thunderstorms into Saturday and Sunday for the greater Truckee/Tahoe region.

High temperatures are expected in the mid- to upper-80s in Truckee and the upper-70s and lower-80s at the lake.

If thunderstorms occur, the chances for lightning increase, potentially putting the dry region in a dangerous situation with lightning-caused wildfires.
