GARDNERVILLE, Nev. — The final leg of the Carson City freeway is set to open this morning – the Nevada Department of Transportation had said it would be opening around 10 a.m. at the south entry to the freeway. More on that story here.

The East Fork Fire Protection District sent engine 12 to help with the attack on the White Creek Fire in southwest Reno. The fire had burned 60 acres with 20 percent containment as of the last update Tuesday evening.

The hottest day of this heat wave is expected to be today with a high of 104 degrees in the forecast for Gardnerville. There is a 20 percent chance of isolated thunderstorms this afternoon, along with continued haze coming over from fires in California.

Thursday has a high of 103 degrees in store before we should drop back down below 100 (though just to 99 degrees) on Friday. Overnight lows will hang around in the 60-degree range.

Temperatures should ease into the low 90s next week.
