...High Confidence in Early Summer Heatwave for This Week...

Unusually warm temperatures are forecast Tuesday through Friday
of this week as summer-like high pressure builds over the region.

* First real heat of the summer season for several days in a row
  could lead to heat health impacts for vulnerable populations and
  those outdoors for extended periods of time. Prepare now to do
  outdoor activities in the morning and have a cool place to go
  during the afternoons.

* High temperatures 20 degrees above normal could exceed a few
  daily records. Peak heat is projected Wednesday and Thursday
  with valleys well into the 90s and mountain communities well
  into the 80s. Friday could have similar heat; however, more
  clouds and thunderstorms could limit how hot it gets.

* Afternoon thunderstorms will become a feature starting Tuesday,
  especially over the high terrain, but storms into far western
  Nevada cannot be ruled out. Be prepared for lightning, downpours,
  sudden temperature drops, small hail, and strong outflow winds.
  Storms could impact outdoor recreation along with any outdoor
  pandemic response facilities. More numerous storms are possible
  on Friday and Saturday.

Take some time over the next few days to review heat and
thunderstorm safety online from the National Weather Service.
There is plenty of material out there and it has been a while
since we have experienced either weather hazard in the region.
