Clothing and Climate

Weather in Reno

Reno is a high desert set against the Sierra Nevada mountains at 4,500 feet in elevation, with four distinct seasons. During the summer months, temperatures can reach the 90s. Reno and Lake Tahoe are known for abundant skiing so colder temps and snow are the norm during the winter. Lake Tahoe is less than an hour away but 2,000 feet higher, meaning the weather is often cooler, even during the summer.

What to Wear

Dressing in layers is the key to comfort all year in Reno. Cool, breathable clothing is ideal for rising daytime temperatures and abundant sunshine in the summer. Due to the elevation, evenings do cool off, so plan accordingly if you anticipate being out and about after the sun sets. During the winter, daytime temperatures average in the 40s with overnight lows below freezing. Sunny days are still plentiful but snow is often in the forecast, especially around Lake Tahoe. Because of the high elevation and number of sunny days, sunscreen is advisable even when the temperatures drop.

All that sunshine means a hat is a must-have, and what better way to dress like a local than with a Reno Tahoe x bigtruck® hat, made locally in Truckee.
