Showers and thunderstorms are continuing to propagate from the south
to north this evening bringing localized heavy rainfall, frequent
lightning, and gusty outflow winds in excess of 40 mph.

These winds are may bring blowing dust across the west central
Nevada Basin and Range in addition to downwind of the Honey Lake
Basin. We have already seen a report from Fallon NAS of 4 mile
visibility in blowing dust.

While storms are moving faster than in recent days, renewed flash
flood threats are present due to the heavy rainfall. Those living
in flood prone areas or near recent burn scars should continue to
monitor and be prepared to take action should heavy rains or a
flash flood warning be issued.
