Sunny and mild today, a little cooler on Wednesday

High pressure at the surface and aloft will bring another day of sunny skies and light winds to the Tahoe area.

Highs today are forecast to reach near 50 degrees around the lake to the upper 30s at the 8,000 foot resort level.

Lows tonight are expected to drop in the teens at lake level and the mid 20s in the upper elevations above the temperature inversion that typically occurs under these stable high pressure patterns.

Some minor cooling is forecast on Wednesday as a weak upper level trough of low pressure drops south over eastern Nevada bringing in cooler air from the Great Basin.

Highs on Wednesday are projected to reach the mid to upper 40s around the lake under sunny skies and light north winds.

Little change in the dry weather pattern is forecast for the remainder of the week.
