Good weather for golfing this week

Simon Smith
Jonah M. Kessel / Tahoe Daily Tribune / With parrot on shoulder, John Mitchell of South Lake Tahoe rides his bike down Harrison Avenue as the sun sets over Lake Tahoe late Wednesday afternoon.

A warmer, drier and more stable airmass will begin to move into our region today.

There will still be the slight possibility of an afternoon shower or thunderstorm, but the chances are much less than in recent days.

For today, expect partly cloudy conditions and higher temperatures with highs in the 80s once again.

Afternoon westerly breezes will be in the 10 to 15 mph range. For tonight, skies will clear and with the drier conditions; temperatures will go back down into the 40s to mid 50s.

The outlook for the weekend and the golf tournament looks good with fine weather to continue and the chances of showers and thunderstorms confined to areas to our south and east.
