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.
