Tahoe weather: Sunny and cool today, warmer Friday

High pressure building behind a cold low pressure system will bring sunny skies, light northeast winds and highs in the lower to mid 50s today. Lows tonight are forecast to drop into the lower to mid 20s with local areas of fog near Truckee.

A mild westerly flow off the Pacific will bring warmer temperatures Friday along with partly cloudy skies. Highs on Friday are projected to reach the upper 50s to lower 60s around the lake and in the upper 40s at the 8000 foot resort level. Look for winds to pick up Friday afternoon from the southwest at 10 to 20 mph with gusts to 40 mph in the upper elevations.
