Believe it or not, this is actually the third earliest 90 degree day we’ve ever had in Reno!

The earliest we’ve ever hit the 90s was in 2012. That year, we hit 90 for the first time on April 22.

The second earliest was in 1947 when we hit 90 for the first time on May 1.

On average, Our first 90 degree day usually comes around June 8, so we hit the mark a full month early this year.

And in case you were wondering, the latest we’ve ever reached that marker was in 1907. That year, our first 90 degree day didn’t come until July 24.

But just remember, if you’re headed out to areas lakes or rivers to escape the heat, it’s still early in the season so the water hasn’t really had a lot of time to warm up yet — the Truckee river was 55 degrees this morning -- so you’ll want to at least limit the amount of time you’re in the water.
