Smoke from the Ferguson Fire will be thicker today and affect the Western Nevada Sierra Front, the Lake Tahoe Basin, the Eastern Sierra and Mineral County. Cities affected include Reno, Sparks, Carson City, Minden, Truckee, Tahoe City, South Lake Tahoe, Bridgeport, Markleeville, Mammoth Lakes, Yerington and Hawthorne. Air quality will be poor today along with reduced visibility. Avoid strenuous outdoor activity and if you are sensitive to smoke, stay indoors.
Thunderstorm chances will increase this weekend for much of the forecast area, with overnight storms possible on Saturday and Sunday. Hazards will include heavy rain, strong outflow winds, lightning (with a risk of new fire starts possible), and small hail. Anyone with outdoor plans, such as festivals or recreational activities, should have a plan to find safe, sturdy shelter in the event of a thunderstorm and keep a close eye on the forecast.
