GARDNERVILLE, Nev. — As a historic winter storm pounds the northeast portion of the country, we’ll be enjoying clear skies with a high reaching up to 75 degrees this afternoon.

The Carson River continued its gradual, stair-step crawl upwards on Monday, peaking at 10.75 feet on the East Fork in Gardnerville just after midnight — a rise of about three inches over the previous 24 hours. It’s also a rise of about nine inches over the previous week.

It is still flowing about 2.75 feet below flood level, though continued snowmelt in the hills over the next week will see the river continuing to rise.

After a clear week, there is a chance of rain sitting around Sunday and next Monday.

The Douglas County Public Library will host toddler storytime for children 18 months to 3 years of age at 10:30 a.m. Children will participate in music and felt-board stories. Preschool storytime for children ages three to five years will be at 11:15 a.m. Music and a craft accompany stories. The Minden Library is located at 1625 Library Lane.

The Douglas High boys golf team competes in a Sierra League tournament at the Sierra Sage Golf Course this morning at 11:30. And Douglas baseball hosts McQueen at 3:45 p.m. in the Northern 4A kickoff for both schools.

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