Clear, warm weather through the weekend

Simon Smith
Dan Thrift / Tahoe Daily Tribune / A windy afternoon makes for prime kite-boarding on Wednesday off Nevada Beach.

A nice and relatively quiet weekend is in store for us weatherwise, as high pressure builds back into our region from the Midwest and increases our temperatures.

Generally fine weather will persist through Sunday, although a few thunderstorms may begin to show up to our south toward Bridgeport in Mono County on Sunday.

Under sunny skies during the day and clear skies at night, temperatures will climb into the upper 70s to lower 80s, and fall back into the 40s to lower 50s at night. These temperatures are close to average for mid July in our region.

Winds will generally behave and pick up each afternoon from the west or southwest in the 10 to 15 mph range, with some higher gusts to 20 mph possible.

Have a great weekend!
