Winds will be lighter today

Trevor Clark / Tahoe Daily Tribune / Lake Tahoe Community College graduates Kelleigh Crowe and David Hartzell throw their caps into the air at the closing of LTCC's 32nd annual commencement ceremony on Friday night.

A quieter day, at least weather-wise, can be expected today as the winds will be much lighter and out of the northeast in the 10 to 15 mph range.

Expect mostly sunny skies, except for areas of thick smoke around town due to the Angora Fire and a few afternoon clouds.

Highs will warm into the upper 60s to lower 70s, with lows tonight back down into the 30s to lower 40s.
