SOUTH LAKE TAHOE ” Other than perhaps a few clouds showing up by this afternoon, the forecast is largely unchanged with more sunshine and warm weather to continue.

Winds will be a little lighter today than the past several days with afternoon southwest winds in the 10 to 15 mph range with perhaps some gusts to 20 mph.

Highs will rise into the lower 80s for most areas with the warmer areas like Markleeville rising into the upper 80s.

Higher elevations will rise into the upper 60s along the Sierra at the 8000-foot level with temperatures about 5 degrees warmer at the same elevations along the Carson Range on the East Shore.

Clear skies tonight and light winds will allow low temperatures to drop back down into the 40s for most areas with lower 50s in the typical warmer locations on the North and East Shores.
