...FIRE WEATHER WATCH IN EFFECT WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY AFTERNOONS
AND EVENINGS FOR THUNDERSTORMS AND STRONG OUTFLOW WINDS FOR THE
LAKE TAHOE BASIN, SIERRA FRONT, AND THE EASTERN SIERRA...

* Changes...None

* Affected Area...Fire Zone 272 Greater Lake Tahoe Area, Fire
Zone 274 Southern Mono County, Fire Zone 420 Northern Sierra
Front including Carson City, Douglas, Storey, Southern Washoe,
Western Lyon, and Far Southern Lassen Counties, Fire Zone 421
Southern Sierra Front including Alpine, Northern Mono,
Southern Lyon and and Western Mineral Counties.

* Thunderstorms...Isolated to scattered thunderstorms are
forecast Wednesday and Thursday afternoons, lasting into the
early evening each day. Storms will be a hybrid mix of wet and
dry, however with recent unusual low humidity, vegetation
could be extra receptive to new lightning caused fire starts.

* Confidence...Confidence with this scenario is medium. It is
too soon to tell how extensive lightning outside storm cores
will be or how much rainfall is possible each day. However,
enough risk is present to warrant a fire weather watch.

* Impacts...Lightning can create new fire starts and may combine
with strong outflow winds to cause a fire to rapidly grow in
size and intensity before first responders can contain them.
These storms could also produce heavy rains directly under the
cores, which could result in debris flows downstream of recent
burn areas such as the Poeville and Numbers Fires.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...
