* Thunderstorm coverage will decrease going into this evening,
  before widespread showers and thunderstorms return for Saturday
  through Monday. Chances to see a thunderstorm will increase to
  50-70% Saturday through Monday for any given location in the
  Sierra, northeast CA, and western Nevada.

* Main threats include frequent lightning, heavy rainfall, up to
  nickel size hail, and erratic wind gusts up to 50 mph, which
  could bring areas of blowing dust near dust prone areas.
  Thunderstorms could also 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

* 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.
