Genoa, Nev. — School Board trustees will put the final touches on opening plans at their 4 p.m. virtual meeting today. School begins in Carson Valley on Monday. If you want to provide input to the board, you can email or visit for information about how to log in.

County and planning commissioners are meeting jointly and virtually 1 p.m. today to discuss the Douglas County master plan process. Work is underway to finalize the text portions of the plan. Go to and click on agendas and minutes.

A search related to a boat found empty on Lake Tahoe will resume this morning. Douglas County Marine 7 was out off Cave Rock on Monday evening investigating.  Douglas County Sheriff’s Search and Rescue is expected to scour the shoreline today. This is different from the rescue off South Lake on Monday where a man was drowned.

While all that is going on, we’re also going to be in the middle of a fire weather watch, starting at noon. We had a classic outflow wind event in Gardnerville and Minden on Monday. 

Today expect scattered showers and thunderstorms between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. with mostly sunny skies and a high temperature of 89 degrees. The chance of precipitation is 40 percent, but the lightning activity level is 4, which translates into 11-15 strikes in a 5-minute period around the storms.
