Reno Nevada Weather
Reno residents enjoy four distinct seasons and over 300 days of sunshine each year. When combined with Reno's elevation (4,400 feet) and arid climate, we enjoy winters that are much milder than midwest and northeast US areas and summers that are much milder than southern Nevada, Arizona, and many inland areas of Northern and Southern California. We do get light snow (generally 2" - 5" several times a year) that typically melts away in a few hours to a day or two. As you can see, our summer months are warm with cool evening temperatures.
