Regent at Winery today

Nice wet storm

I measured .35 inches of rain that fell between Monday morning and today. That brings the total for Genoa up to slightly more than half an inch. East Fork Fire Capt. Terry Taylor said it would be very difficult to ignite a fire this week, but next week might be a different matter. The storm is expected to clear out by Friday.

Could see thunderstorms today

There’s a possibility we’ll see scattered thunderstorms today after 11 a.m. Expect mostly cloudy skies with a high temperature of 64 degrees. The chance of precipitation is 40 percent.
