across all of the region from Friday through much of next week.
Above average daytime highs will continue with typical afternoon
breezes for much of the upcoming week, although overnight lows
will be cooler.

quite as fast and leaves the southern third of the forecast with
enough moisture and instability for isolated storms over portions
of Mono/Mineral/Lyon/Alpine counties and maybe as far north as
the southern Pine Nuts in Douglas County and the southern and
southeast sections of Churchill County. There is also a very small
