* Thunderstorms could be strong to severe this afternoon and
  evening, with winds exceeding 50 mph and hail exceeding half an
  inch. Localized heavy rainfall, frequent lightning, and isolated
  blowing dust are possible, especially over the west-Central
  Nevada Basin and Range.

* Thursday through Sunday, the threat transitions into a heavy
  rain and flash flood risk, with slow storm motions and increased
  moisture present. There is moderate chance for widespread
  showers and thunderstorms this weekend.

* If you are outdoors this week, have a storm safety plan. Make sure
  to have a way to seek shelter within a sturdy building in case a
  thunderstorm forms nearby. If you do not have access to a sturdy
  building, a hard-topped vehicle with the windows rolled up is a
  good option for protection from lightning. Complete outdoor
  activities in the morning before afternoon and evening
  thunderstorms develop.

* Cold and fast flows will continue on area streams and rivers.
  Avoid recreating near fast-flowing waterways. Afternoon and
  evening thunderstorms could generate flash floods, especially near
  recent burn scars. If a nearby stream rises quickly or the water
  becomes turbid with mud or debris, get to higher ground
