Reno area temperatures are headed toward record range today and tomorrow.
And the heat, combined with no precipitation, is making an already bas wildland fire potential even worse.
Today marks Reno's 80th straight day without any measurable precipitation.
The area still is a ways off from breaking any records for the longest dry period, but this spell is easily in the top ten.
Today's high temperature in Reno is forecast to be 98.
That would tie the all-time record for that date set in 1985.
The record for tomorrow is 99 degrees, set in 1924.
