Fire Weather Planning Forecast
National Weather Service Reno NV
643 AM PDT Fri Aug 18 2017

.DISCUSSION...

Thunderstorms remain a possibility each day through the middle of
next week. Storms today will be mainly over the Sierra and portions
of northeast California, likely expanding in coverage through the
weekend and especially early next week. Storms are expected to
get progressively wetter, lessening the risk of new fire starts, but
also increasing the flash flood risk.


Note:  Thunderstorms imply gusty and erratic winds.
