GARDNERVILLE, Nev. — There’s a bit of haze over the Valley this morning tailing over from fires in California, including the 1,000-acre Minerva Fire in Quincy.
It’ll be hot this week — to a potential record level. Look for a high of 101 degrees today with a 20 percent chance of thunderstorms and showers after 11 a.m.
The National Weather Service has issued a heat advisory from 11 a.m. Tuesday to 11 p.m. Thursday with highs potentially reaching up to 110 degrees in some locations. A high of 105 is expected Wednesday in Gardnerville.
Temperatures are expected to break triple digits each day through Thursday before easing off into the mid-90s starting Friday.
Crews wrapped up full containment of the Preacher Fire Saturday evening. That story is here.
The Douglas County Public Library celebrates the end of its Summer Reading Program this evening with a visit from Jacques Magician. The show will take place on Monday, July 31 at 6:30 p.m. in the C.V.I.C. Hall, 1602 Esmeralda Ave. in Minden. The Summer Reading Finale is sponsored by the Friends of the Douglas County Public Library and was made possible in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services and the Nevada State Library, Archives and Public Records.
That’s a full lid for this morning. Take care out there and have a great day.
