Genoa, Nev. — Forecasters are warning there’s a chance of a freeze in Carson and Smith valleys early Tuesday morning after a cold front rolls in on a blustery Monday. Temperatures are predicted to drop to 31 degrees in Minden 5 a.m. Tuesday for about an hour before warming up.


The weather alert map shows a red flag warning in the Central Valley of California and freeze warnings across central Nevada. If you’re in a low spot in the Valley, be prepared to cover your tomatoes.


Graduations for Douglas High School and ASPIRE occurred without incident on Friday. Most of the weekend seemed was fairly quiet, with a couple of stranded boats on Lake Tahoe.


There was a crash on Highway 88 and Mottsville Lane around 12:15 p.m. Sunday. The southbound lanes were closed for a bit and I didn’t hear that anyone was transported for treatment.


Waterloo and Douglas are closed at Highway 395 today, according to NDOT. There is one-way traffic control on State Route 89 between Carson River Resort and Heenan Lake in Alpine County 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. this week.


The red flag warnings on Friday and Father’s Day didn’t do much, but that’s two so far this season. The forecast calls for sunny skies and a high near 70 degrees with the north wind 5-15 mph this afternoon. High temperatures will be back up in the 90s in time for the arrival of summer.
