Warm weather on the way for the holiday

It appears the strong continental high will begin to build into our region and gain control of our weather at least temporarily, forcing the strong northeast Pacific low, which has brought our windy weather the past few weeks, further out into the Gulf of Alaska.

Along with the high will come lighter winds, warm weather and the chance of afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms, although not likely for today. It will be sunny and warmer with light lake breezes which will keep areas right on the shore of Lake Tahoe in the mid 70s. The rest of us will see highs in the upper 70s to lower 80s with mid 80s out in Meyers and Truckee. Lows tonight will drop back into the 40s. Expect lower 50s for the east shore and Kingsbury Grade.

July 4 still looks to be very warm. Night time temperatures for fireworks viewing will be in the upper 60s, and daytime temperatures in the 80s to near 90 away from the lake. A few isolated thunderstorms may develop in the late afternoon generally south of Tahoe with only some afternoon cloudiness around here and light lake breezes.
