Record-Breaking Sierra Heat Giving Way to Storms

Posted: Updated:
Record-breaking heat is expected to give way to thunderstorms capable of producing flash flooding around Reno, Lake Tahoe and much of the Sierra Nevada.
The National Weather Service issued a flash flood warning shortly after noon on Tuesday along the Nevada-California line where a storm dumped more than an inch of rain in less than an hour in central Mono County east of Yosemite National Park.
A flash flood watch goes into effect Wednesday morning for areas in and around Lake Tahoe, Reno, Carson City, Sparks, Gardnerville, Virginia City as well as the California towns of Bridgeport and Mammoth Lakes.

Highs were forecast in the upper 90s Tuesday through Thursday in Reno, where 42-year-old records fell with highs of 103 on Sunday and 105 on Monday.  (AP)
