While temperatures will stay very warm, the weak disturbance which created some thunderstorms Wednesday afternoon should move out of the region, and the airmass should stabilize a bit which will reduce the chances of afternoon thunderstorms in western Nevada. High temperatures will stay in the mid to upper 90s through Friday, and could reach triple digits over the weekend. All that heat will bring back a chance of afternoon thunderstorms by the first of next week.

Late Night Radio

On a different subject, a reader asks the following: “Here’s something that has always puzzled me. How come I can hear so many more radio stations at night than I can during the day time? Are there just a lot more on the air then, or do they turn up their power, or is there some other explanation?”

No, no, and yes to your questions, in that order.  There aren’t more stations on late at night. In fact, many sign off during the late hours. As for power, there are many radio stations that are required to turn DOWN their power after hours, because they will interfere with other stations far away on the same frequency at night, whereas during the day the signal won’t go as far. Tomorrow, I’ll tell you what’s happening.
