GARDNERVILLE, Nev. — Look for sunny skies with a high of 56 degrees and light winds today. The weekend should be clear and warmer. Temperatures will ramp into the mid-70s through most of next week.

The warmer temperatures are projected to bring rises along the Carson River in the coming days as snow continues to melt higher in the mountains.

The West Fork of the Carson River in Markleeville is projected to draw within five inches of flood stage by Tuesday. The East Fork is projected to climb into monitor stage early next week, reaching within 18 inches of flood stage by Tuesday. And the main stem of the Carson River which runs between Genoa and Carson City is expected to climb within 3.3 feet of flood stage by Tuesday.

Douglas baseball fell 6-5 to Wooster Thursday afternoon in Reno.

We’ll have our annual Prom Photo Booth set up at Minden Park Saturday afternoon starting around 4 p.m. for anyone who wants to come by and have their pictures taken for the DHS prom photo gallery. Anyone attending Saturday’s mother-son dance would be more than welcome to stop by and have their picture taken as well.

Also this weekend, Douglas High track & field will host its annual Big George Rotary Invitational, and there will be a full day of activity for the other sports.

The Genoa Cowboy Poetry Festival is running all weekend. More information on that here.

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