Warm weather, wind expected this week

The National Weather Service predicts a warm week in store at Lake Tahoe – with high temperatures running in the 80s. Celebrity golfers playing at the American Century Championship may get a bit of a break from the wind with the weather bureau expecting gusts of up to 10-20 mph from the west and southwest, meteorologist Gina Beninato reported.

Beginning Wednesday, isolated thunderstorms will possibly cross the sky in the afternoon and evening. This weather picture should represent familiar ground to those who attended one of Lake Tahoe’s signature events two years ago.

Thunderstorms brought rain that sent participants and spectators fleeing into the clubhouse at the Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course.

However, the Western Regional Climate Center in Reno said three of the last five years in July have produced no moisture or only a trace in that summer month, including last July.

“Odds of getting any precipitation in July are tiny,” climatologist Kelly Redmond said.
