No matter how you look at it, it’s going to be hot this week. A strong ridge of high pressure over us will keep our high temperatures near record level, and will hover around the 100 degree mark though the rest of the work week. The positioning of the high to our southeast may begin to bring up some unstable air from Arizona, so some afternoon cloudiness Wednesday and Thursday could allow a popup thunderstorm in the afternoon, but it is more likely those will stay just top the south of the Reno Carson area. Temperatures moderate a bit into the 4th of July weekend, but should still stay in the mid to low 90s throughout.
On a more personal note, I’m so proud to announce that my colleague Angela Schilling has now earned the American Meteorologist Society’s Certified Broadcast Meteorologist (CBM) seal of approval, the highest certification offered to television meteorologists. Angela has worked long and hard at attaining this qualification, and joins myself and Jeff Martinez to give KTVN three CBMs on our weather team. I believe we are the only TV station west of the Rocky Mountains with three CBMs. Congratulations Angela!
