Summary
"Reno is located in far-west central Nevada in the lee of the Sierra Nevada mountain range. Reno is on the boundary between two distinct climatic regimes. The first regime is the dry high desert climate of the western Great Basin. The second regime is that of the alpine Sierra Nevada. Both regimes greatly influence Reno's climate. As a result of its location in the high desert of the Great Basin, Reno experiences large temperature ranges on both a diurnal and an annual scale. During the summer afternoon highs are often above 90° F, but at night the air mass can cool down into the 50s. In the last five or six years however, nighttime lows during July and early August sometimes do not make it below 65° F. As will be seen in the tables in the Temperature section below, this warming trend has been seen in summer high temperatures, but not to the extent that it is reflected in the nighttime temperatures."--Intro
