Fire Weather Watch in Effect for the Weekend


High winds return to the region bringing a Fire Weather Watch for the weekend. The Reno national weather service is issuing the watch from Saturday afternoon into the evening as gusty winds upwards of 40mph are expected along with low humidity.
The combination can cause the risk of fire to rapidly grow in size and intensity before first responders can contain them. You are asked to avoid outdoor activities that can cause a spark near dry vegetation, such as using dragging trailer chains, lighting campfires, driving over dry grass, target shooting, or outdoor work.
