  • Special Weather Statement issued May 24 at 4:56AM PDT by NWS
  • Effective: Friday, May 25, 2018 at 5 a.m.

  • ...THUNDERSTORMS WITH HEAVY RAIN, HAIL AND STRONG WIND GUSTS THIS
    AFTERNOON AND EVENING...
    Low pressure approaching the California coast will bring favorable
    conditions for more widespread and stronger thunderstorms this
    afternoon and evening over the eastern Sierra and portions of
    western Nevada.
    Thunderstorms are most likely to form near the Sierra in Mono and
    Alpine counties early this afternoon, then move across the Reno,
    Carson City and Lake Tahoe vicinity during the afternoon commute
    hours between 4 and 7 PM. The strongest storms are then expected
    to move northward across Lassen County, the Surprise Valley and
    far northwest Nevada this evening, including Susanville and
    Cedarville.
    The stronger storms will be capable of producing hail up to 1
    inch in diameter, wind gusts in excess of 45 mph, and significant
    lightning activity. Very heavy rainfall will produce ponding on
    roads and reduced visibility. Localized flash flooding is also
    possible, with the potential for debris flows, especially in
    areas where heavy rain falls on recent burn scars.
    For the commute this afternoon, allow extra time for travel and
    keep extra distance between vehicles. If you`re planning outdoor
    activities, watch the sky for developing thunderstorms, and head
    indoors if you hear thunder.
