...Hot Temperatures Through Monday...

* Noticeably warmer temperatures and less cloud cover arrive
  today. While nothing too out of the ordinary for late June, high
  temperatures today will run 6 to 12 degrees above average with
  mid to upper 90s across lower valleys and mid 80s in the Sierra

* By Monday, temperatures across western Nevada will rise further,
  to within a couple degrees of the daily records that were set in
  2015. Expect many of the valleys along and east of a line from
  Chalfant, to Fernley, to the Smoke Creek Desert, to climb into
  the low 100s by late afternoon. Elsewhere in the lower valleys,
  high temperatures in the upper 90s will be common with mid to
  upper 80s in the Sierra valleys. Fortunately, overnight
  temperatures will cool off nicely due to the very dry airmass in

* For the overall risk, most of the Sierra will remain in a Low
  Risk for heat related illness while the remainder of northeast
  California and western Nevada will see a Moderate Risk. Consider
  reducing, canceling or rescheduling strenuous activities to a
  cooler time of the day. Individuals at risk should stay in the
  coolest available place. Drink plenty of fluids to stay well
  hydrated. Never leave children or animals in a vehicle for any
  amount of time as the temperature inside a car rapidly heats to
  a deadly level.
