...Thunderstorms developing over North Lake Tahoe...

At 343 PM PDT, Doppler radar was tracking a thunderstorm over Squaw
Valley. This storm was nearly stationary. Isolated to scattered
storms will continue to develop through the late afternoon and
evening hours.

Half inch hail and winds in excess of 40 mph will be possible with
these storms.

Locations impacted include...
South Lake Tahoe, Alpine Meadows, Squaw Valley, Tahoe City, Incline
Village, Kings Beach, Prosser Creek Reservoir, Sonora Pass,
Coleville, Boca Reservoir, Donner Peak, Spooner Summit, Glenbrook,
Emerald Bay, Crystal Bay and Genoa.


If on or near a lake, get out of the water and move indoors or inside
a vehicle now. Don`t be caught on the water in a thunderstorm. Strong
wind gusts and lightning pose an immediate danger to boaters. Gusty
winds will cause a rapid increase in wave heights which may capsize
small boats.
