Carson City sits a few hundred feet higher than Reno, and as a result, are often a cool spot in the State of Nevada. They were fairly cool in the state capital on Monday, but particularly on Tuesday as some cooler weather rushed into the Great Basin thanks to a system rolling through the Pacific Northwest. Carson City’s mountainous location led to cooler temperatures, but also dry conditions,despite the energy associated with the system thanks to the Capital’s position in the rain shadow. The National Weather Service handled the difficult forecast well, proving that practice makes perfect.
Actuals: Monday – High 68, Low 44
Tuesday – High 60, Low 46
