GARDNERVILLE, Nev., June 19, 2015 — Movies in the Park kicks off at dusk at Heritage Park tonight with “Jumanji.” If you’ve never been before, bring a blanket and plan to show up a bit early as the park tends to fill up. You can read more about this summer’s Movies in the Park schedule here.

The Douglas County Community Center also hosts Teen Night tonight (and most Fridays and Saturdays through the summer) from 6 to 10 p.m. for sixth- through 12th-graders. The featured game tonight is Human Hungry Hippo. Cost is $5 for drop-in or free with a community center membership. Each participant must have a release of liability on file at the center.

On the weather front, look for a high of 90 degrees this afternoon with clear skies and winds in the 10-15 mph range. Conditions should remain mostly the same through late next week, gradually climbing into the mid-90s.

The National Weather Service has issued a fire weather watch for Sunday afternoon, extending late into the same evening, due to gusty winds and extremely dry conditions. Winds will range from 15 to 25 mph, gusting up to 35 mph, with humidity at  5 to 10 percent.

That’s a full lid for this morning. Take care out there and have a great day.
