More warm, dry weather

Jim Grant/Sun News ServiceLocal artist Loretta Bookmammer takes a well-deserved break at the arts and crafts fair being held through the weekend at the South Tahoe Middle School.

SOUTH LAKE TAHOE ” If the remainder of August and the first few weeks of September do not produce any measurable precipitation at either the Co-Op site in town or at the Lake Tahoe Airport, this will go down as a record-breaking summer for dryness, as only 0.02 inch of precipitation has been recorded since June 21 when summer began.

For the weekend though, more sunny, warm weather with the typical afternoon west to southwest winds in the 10 to 15 mph range with some higher gusts to 25 mph possible.

Highs will warm into the upper 70s to mid 80s each day with upper 80s to near 90 around Markleeville.

Overnight lows will fall back into the 40s except for upper 30s near the Truckee airport and lower to mid 50s on the north and east shores of Lake Tahoe along with the Kingsbury Grade areas.

Have a great weekend!
