Spring-like temps – and maybe a bit of snow – in store this week
LAKE TAHOE – Fingers crossed, but it looks like spring-like temperatures should be the norm this week – for the most part – heading into the Memorial Day holiday and the unofficial kick-off to the summer tourism season in Truckee/Tahoe.
According to the National Weather Service in Reno, high temperatures at the lake should hover in the upper-50s to lower-60s into Sunday. The same forecast holds true for Truckee.
Wednesday could be interesting, however, as there is a 40 percent chance of rain during the day and a 60 percent chance of some snow overnight, although little to no accumulation is expected. Sunny skies should return Thursday.
Below is an extended forecast from http://www.noaa.gov.
