Cool temperatures in June continued into the first 10 days of July for the Western U.S.
Temperatures have finally warmed to near seasonal averages with highs in the low to mid 80's. Sunny weather with highs in the 80's will continue into Friday, with light afternoon breezes on the lake.
Highs will continue to be in the low to mid 80's Saturday, but afternoon winds will pick up a bit with gusts up to 20 mph from the southwest on the lake. That could make for some choppy conditions away from the west shore of the lake. Sunday we could continue to see gusty winds with gusts to 25 mph on the lake and some rough water away from shore. Temperatures could also cool a few degrees for a high around 80 degrees.
Another cool trough moving through Sunday into Monday and again for the middle of next week will keep high temperatures near to just below average. We are expecting temperatures to top out around 80 degrees through Wednesday, with overnight lows in the 40's. Afternoon breezes from the southwest should not be as strong as over the weekend.
There are some forecasts showing warmer temperatures later in the month, but for now, escape the heat in Tahoe and enjoy the beautiful summer weather!
Last Thursday was the 4th of July. We had stopped for a few days in Montrose, CO just outside of the entrance to Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park. It was nice to leave the dry desert regions and move into the greener Rocky Mountain areas with snow still on the peaks!
On a sad note, during the parade, a vehicle lost control and went up on the sidewalk running over some spectators right in front of us. It was terrible as I watched the wheels go right over a 2-year-old child that had to be airlifted. Luckily the emergency vehicles were right there in the parade and reacted fast. But definitely a sad part of the day. Our prayers are with the victims...
Last weekend we ventured our way into Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park. It is one of the steepest, deepest, and narrowest canyons in the U.S. The pictures are deceiving, but they said the empire state building would only reach halfway up to the rim from the river.
Only 1 week left on this adventure. Then back to Tahoe to enjoy local hiking!
