We will likely get the whole gamut of springtime weather here in western Nevada over the next week. For the short-term, Tuesday skies will start partly cloudy with increasing clouds in the afternoon, but it’s unlikely we will see any showers out of them. On Wednesday, an approaching low pressure system will kick up some gusty winds in the afternoon which could turn into rain or even snow by Thursday; although it’s unlikely the valley will see any accumulations. Temperatures plummet into the 50s Thursday before rebounding with clearing skies back into the upper 60s on Saturday and the mid-70s by the weekend.
Charles had a question that comes up a lot around here: “Why do the weather or humidity conditions from January through March cause so many nosebleeds? I personally have had four episodes in this period and have tried getting answers from my Doctor but he is not inclined to spend any time dealing with this question. Appreciate any input that you may be able to provide.” Charles’ malady is a fairly common one, especially during the winter months. Tomorrow I’ll tell you why the season can make all the difference when it comes to nosebleeds.
