Cool, sunny weather continues

Jonah M. Kessel / Tahoe Daily Tribune / Davey "Doc" Wiser stands in the hot sun outside of Harrah's Lake Tahoe, anticipating his ride on the Pony Express. This is Wiser's 25th year participating in the re-creation of the Pony Express, which had more than 500 riders carry letters over 1,966 miles through eight states.

Expect more of the same weatherwise for the next several days, with minor day-to-day fluctuations. It will be a little warmer today, and not quite as windy, but sunny conditions will continue. Afternoon southwest winds will be in the 10 to 15 mph range.

Highs today will reach the upper 70s to lower 80s with near 90 in Markleeville.

Higher elevations will see highs in the 60s.

Lows will drop back into the 40s to near 50, except upper 30s in the typically colder locations such as Truckee and Meyers.
