Lake Tahoe could see a soggy start and end to the week.

Monday brings a 50% chance of rain, according to the National Weather Service in Reno. The strongest chance of precipitation comes after 11 a.m., with otherwise sunny conditions expected during the day.

Light winds of 5 mph are possible in the afternoon.

“Showers and thunderstorms are expected again today as low pressure shifts into the southern Sierra,” per the weather service. “Unsettled weather continues for the rest of the week with additional chances of showers and isolated afternoon thunderstorms mainly in the Sierra.”
