* Widespread showers and thunderstorms are expected through
  Monday, with a 50-80% chance for any given location to see a
  storm in the Sierra, northeast CA, and western Nevada. Storms
  will favor the afternoon and evening hours, with chances for
  showers to continue overnight.

* While the typical thunderstorm threats are on the table, such as
  frequent lightning, up to nickel size hail, and erratic wind
  gusts up to 50 mph, which could kick up areas of blowing dust;
  the main concern will be heavy rainfall. The threat for flash
  flooding exists, especially for recent burn scars and steep
  terrain. If a nearby stream rises quickly or the water becomes
  turbid with mud or debris, get to higher ground immediately.
  Urban flooding is also a possibility given the antecedent
  conditions and potential rainfall rates.

* If you have outdoor plans be sure to have a "plan B". 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 protective option from lightning. The preferred time for
  completion of outdoor activities will be the morning prior to
  the development of afternoon and evening thunderstorms.
