Calm winds of 5 mph will pick up in the afternoon. Friday will be sunny.

The overnight low will fall to 49 degrees.

Saturday will be nearly identical to Friday. Winds ranging from 5 to 10 mph are expected in the afternoon.

Sunday will bring increased cloud coverage, although overall conditions will be mostly sunny, according to the weather service. 


The high temperature in South Lake Tahoe will hit 69 degrees. Sunday will be slightly more breezy, with gusts ranging from 5 to 15 mph.
