ELKO – A few days of warm, dry weather does not mean summer has arrived in Elko County.

Showers and thunderstorms marched through the southeastern corner of the county on Thursday, and much cooler temperatures were coming in their wake.

Strong winds will continue to be possible in Humboldt, Elko, and northern Lander/Eureka counties on Friday.

Southwest winds of 15 to 25 may have gusts of 40 to 45 mph.

Blowing dust could limit visibility to three miles or less.

High temperatures that have been in the mid-80s will be replaced Friday and Saturday with highs that are 20 degrees cooler.

“Low temperatures on both Saturday and Sunday mornings may fall near to below freezing in many valleys and frost or freeze advisory or warnings are likely to be issued,” stated the weather service. “If you have plants that are sensitive to cold temperatures, please make sure they are covered or brought inside during the weekend.”

Temperatures will quickly rebound, however, climbing back into the 70s on Sunday and 80s or higher next week.

Summer officially begins on June 21.
