Record Highs Across Northern Nevada Continue Into Weekend

RENO, Nev. (AP) — An unseasonably warm, dry weather system that is setting record highs across much of northern Nevada is expected to continue into the weekend.

The records that fell Wednesday included one that had stood for more than a century. The high of 63 at Reno-Tahoe International Airport broke the old record of 62 set in 1912.

The high of 62 in Tonopah shattered the old record of 58 set in 1973. Elko's 58 on Wednesday broke the old mark of 55 dating to 1981 and Winnemucca tied the record of 61 set in 2000. Reno's high of 63 was actually a degree warmer than Las Vegas.
