With over an inch of precipitation in the last couple of days, this spring has already qualified as the third wettest on record. And while we may add a little to that total on Saturday, it probably won’t be enough to move us into 2nd place. The cool low pressure center which brought heavy rains to the region Friday morning will start to move out on Saturday, and the wrap-around moisture could bring some mainly afternoon showers to the Reno area in the afternoon. Temperatures will stay cool (in the low 60s) before a ridge of high pressure builds in starting Sunday. High temperatures will rebound to the mid-70s on Sunday, and the skies should clear out by Memorial Day Monday and we should see high temperatures in the low 80s by then.
The heat sticks around through the better part of next week, peaking in the mid-80s on Tuesday before a weak trough of low pressure comes through on Wednesday, dropping our highs back into seasonable levels in the mid-70s by the latter half of the week.
