We’ve had a lot of fire weather watches, but today saw one cancelled for thunderstorms in Western Nevada. We’re getting some monsoon moisture, which is increasing humidity and the chance for wetting rains. Expect scattered showers after 11 a.m. with the high near 94 degrees and variable winds 5-10 mph.
