Genoa, Nev. — A third red flag warning for critical fire danger in a row only affects the very southern tip of Douglas County this morning, but it’s still in place noon to 11 p.m. in Lyon, Alpine and Mono counties. We could see it expand north by lunchtime.

The surfers may be back on Lake Tahoe today as a wind advisory is predicting up to 3-foot waves 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Small boats, kayaks and paddleboarders will be in for a wild ride and should probably forego the experience.

A proposal to move Zephyr Cove’s sixth-graders to Whittell goes before Douglas County School Board trustees at their 4 p.m. meeting at Douglas High School. Of the parents surveyed by the district, they split evenly on going to a four-day school week. You can find out how to participate online by visiting and clicking on the big purple button.

A 5-foot culvert under the future Muller Lane got the endorsement of the Water Conveyance Committee on Monday evening after the panel determined the only downstream user, the Parks, had been noticed of the meeting. An update on the Martin Slough Trail was continued while the county works out the notification of water rights users downstream from there.

Work on design of Muller Lane Parkway is at 30 percent and the county expects to interview of Construction Managers at Risk on Thursday, County Engineer Jeremy Hutchins told members of the Ditch Committee on Monday.

The Esmeralda Farmers Market is 4-8 p.m. today in downtown Minden. The Main Street Farmers Market is 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesday in Heritage Park in Gardnerville.

Lows are predicted to drop below freezing on Wednesday night, with a predicted temperature of 30 degrees in Minden. I planted tomatoes on Monday, of course, just in time for the cold snap.

It was fairly warm out this morning, which is usually a sign of an approaching storm. The forecast calls for sunny skies and breezy conditions, with the southwest wind increasing to 15-20 mph, gusting to 35 mph by late morning. The high is predicted to hit 72 degrees.
