Heavy rain in Sierra, Reno record; colder rains are forecast

Read Time:1 Minute, 18 Second

Wetter and cooler weather was forecast for much of northern Nevada on Wednesday after heavy rain and thunderstorms moved through parts of the Sierra, and Reno set a 78-year-old record.

In southern Nevada, highs on Wednesday were expected to be in the low to mid 90s F (30s C) and could approach 100 F (38 C) in Las Vegas by the weekend.

Nearly an inch of rain fell Tuesday in the northern Sierra, including 0.97 inches (2.5 centimeters) in Susanville, Calif., and 0.86 inches (2.2 cm) at Lake Tahoe in Incline Village.

Half an inch fell in west Reno. Only 0.07 inches (0.18 cm) was recorded at Reno-Tahoe International Airport, but that broke the old record of 0.05 inches (0.13 cm) set in 1944, the National Weather Service said.

Temperatures in Reno and Tahoe are expected to be 10 to 20 degrees below normal on Wednesday, with highs in the low 60s F (teens C). The weather service said snow is possible in the mountains around Mount Rose between Reno and Tahoe.

Highs in the low 90s F (below 30 C) were forecast for the week in Las Vegas, where the mercury reached 95 F (35 C) on Tuesday and could approach the triple digits (38 C) by the weekend.

The last 100-degree (38 C) day ever recorded in the fall in Las Vegas was October 4, 1947. On average, Las Vegas ends its 100-degree days by September 18.
