Watches & Warnings

Special Statement
Issued: 4:56 AM PDT May. 24, 2018 – National Weather Service

... 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.
