...Showers and Thunderstorm Chances Through Thursday...

* Monsoon moisture will continue to provide chances for showers
  and thunderstorms across the eastern Sierra and western Nevada
  through Thursday with chances diminishing into the weekend.

* These fast moving storms will be capable of dry lightning
  strikes across portions of northeast California and far
  Northwestern Nevada tonight into Thursday morning.

* Wetter storms are expected over areas roughly south of I-80 in
  the Sierra and western Nevada through this evening and into
  Thursday morning. Localized areas of heavy rainfall with
  localized areas of flash flooding will be possible across areas of
  steep terrain and across recent burn scar areas.

* Storm potential will trend down on Thursday and Friday with the
  best chances for isolated storms remaining across northeast
  California and Northwest Nevada. A few of these storms could be
  stronger with the potential for hail, heavy rainfall, and gusty
  outflow winds.

* Ensure you have a way of receiving weather alerts. If you live
  in a flash flood prone area, especially near a burn scar, be
  ready to act quickly if heavy rainfall occurs.
