/O.NEW.KREV.FW.A.0013.200716T2100Z-200717T0400Z/

...FIRE WEATHER WATCH IN EFFECT FROM THURSDAY AFTERNOON THROUGH
THURSDAY EVENING FOR THUNDERSTORMS AND STRONG OUTFLOW WINDS FOR
NORTHEAST CALIFORNIA AND THE FAR NORTHERN SIERRA...

The National Weather Service in Reno has issued a Fire Weather
Watch for thunderstorms and strong outflow winds, which is in
effect from Thursday afternoon through Thursday evening.

* Affected Area...Fire Zone 271 Western Lassen, Eastern Plumas,
  Eastern Sierra, and Eastern Nevada Counties and Fire Zone 278
  Eastern Lassen County.

* Thunderstorms...Isolated to scattered thunderstorms are forecast
  Thursday afternoon, lasting into the early evening. 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.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...
