The R-C Morning Report
November 17, 2011
Those folks who wanted to see “The Last Flight Home,” but missed it on Sunday have another chance today. The movie about the recovering of remains from the wreck of a World War II bomber in the Pacific will be shown as part of the Douglas County Genealogy Group meeting 1 p.m. today at Carson Valley United Methodist Church on Centerville.
The National Weather Service issued a high wind warning starting 10 p.m. tonight and lasting until 1 p.m. Friday. Expect gusts of up to 60 mph in the foothills west of Highway 395. Damage to trees, power lines and property is likely with this storm.
Gusts of wind over the Sierra ridges are expected to hit 90-120 mph tonight and Friday. The cold front is expected to hit at about 10 a.m. Friday bringing a chance of snow to the Valley floor. According to the weather service, an inch or two of snow could accumulate in the foothills, but the heaviest period of snowfall will be brief and just behind the front.
Expect breezy conditions today with winds 10-15 mph, gusting to 25 mph starting about 10 a.m. The high temperature today will climb to around 60 degrees as the storm begins to move in. The low tonight will remain well above freezing at 37 degrees. On the other side of the cold front, that will be the high temperature on Saturday, so get some wood in for the fire.
