Special Weather Statement
Issued: 9:57 AM Jun. 26, 2022 – National Weather Service
...Hot Temperatures Through Monday...

* Noticeably warmer temperatures and less cloud cover arrive
today. While nothing too out of the ordinary for late June, high
temperatures today will run 6 to 12 degrees above average with
mid to upper 90s across lower valleys and mid 80s in the Sierra
valleys.

* By Monday, temperatures across western Nevada will rise further,
to within a couple degrees of the daily records that were set in
2015. Expect many of the valleys along and east of a line from
Chalfant, to Fernley, to the Smoke Creek Desert, to climb into
the low 100s by late afternoon. Elsewhere in the lower valleys,
high temperatures in the upper 90s will be common with mid to
upper 80s in the Sierra valleys. Fortunately, overnight
temperatures will cool off nicely due to the very dry airmass in
place.

* For the overall risk, most of the Sierra will remain in a Low
Risk for heat related illness while the remainder of northeast
California and western Nevada will see a Moderate Risk. Consider
reducing, canceling or rescheduling strenuous activities to a
cooler time of the day. Individuals at risk should stay in the
coolest available place. Drink plenty of fluids to stay well
hydrated. Never leave children or animals in a vehicle for any
amount of time as the temperature inside a car rapidly heats to
a deadly level.
