...THUNDERSTORMS DEVELOPING OVER THE EASTERN SIERRA AND WESTERN
NEVADA BASIN AND RANGE...
At 306 PM PDT, isolated to widely scattered thunderstorms continue
developing and lifting east northeast from the Eastern Sierra in
Mono County through the Western Nevada Basin and Range. The
strongest storms are capable of producing gusty winds in excess of
50 mph along with brief moderate to heavy rain.
Most of the storms will move east-northeast at near 25 mph. This
rapid movement, along with minimal amounts of rain, could lead to
multiple dry lightning strikes and new fire starts. Gusty winds
ahead of the storms could also produce areas of blowing dust and
briefly reduce the visibility to around 1/2 mile.
