The R-C Morning Report for Dec. 14
December 14, 2016
Genoa, Nev. — Today is the last day of sorting and wrapping at the Douglas County Fairgrounds for Project Santa Claus. They'll be working 9 a.m.-3 p.m., if you want to volunteer to help.
It was a little shaky down south on Tuesday with a 3.3 magnitude quake near Walker Lake at 11:12 a.m. and a 3.4 near Mammoth late last night. Topaz Ranch Estates experienced a 1.7 magnitude quake at 4:33 p.m. Nevada is one of the most earthquake prone states in the union.
The R-C is hosting the Carson Valley Chamber of Commerce breakfast mixer this morning, so if you walk in at first light, you might find a crowd. We'll have someone there to help you, so don't panic.
My 80 percent chance of rain consisted of .05 inches on Tuesday, so not enough to bother emptying the gauge. That might not be the case on Thursday when we're supposed to see another atmospheric river roll through with intense rainfall and snow levels near 8,000 feet. A flood watch kicks in 4 a.m. Thursday lasting until 4 a.m. Friday.
Today we go from the rinse cycle to the dry cycle with a high wind warning hitting at 10 a.m. and lasting until 4 p.m. Thursday. Expect the winds to hit 25-45 mph, gusting to 70. We might lose some power lines, so save often. Today's temperature is expected to hit 62 degrees.
