The R-C Morning Report

by Kurt Hildebrand

Sunday saw some record high temperatures fall for January including those for South Lake Tahoe, Markleeville, Yerington and Carson City. Yerington reported 70 degrees, knocking down a 37-year-old record. Carson City broke a 50-year-old record with 66 degrees. Markleeville’s 69 degrees on Sunday broke a record that had survived since 1934. We may see some more record highs today.

Schools, banks and government offices are closed today in observance of Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday, which is actually Jan. 15, 1929. Most stores and The Record-Courier will be open for business today.

The Carson Valley Trails Association is hosting its annual meeting in Genoa tonight. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. in the Genoa Town Hall. They’ll be providing an update on the Genoa Foothill Trail System project.

The weather service is forecasting patchy fog before 10 a.m., but I can’t see any from my vantage point. It’s going to be another warm day with a high temperature of 59 under sunny skies.
