202 PM PDT Sat Aug 8 2020

...FIRE WEATHER WATCH IN EFFECT FROM TUESDAY AFTERNOON THROUGH
WEDNESDAY EVENING FOR THUNDERSTORMS AND NEW FIRE STARTS TUESDAY
FOLLOWED BY GUSTY WINDS AND LOW HUMIDITY WEDNESDAY...

The National Weather Service in Reno has issued a Fire Weather
Watch for thunderstorms and new fire starts followed by gusty
winds and low humidity, which is in effect from Tuesday afternoon
through Wednesday evening.

* Affected Area...Fire Zone 270 Surprise Valley California, Fire
  Zone 271 Western Lassen, Eastern Plumas, Eastern Sierra, and
  Eastern Nevada Counties, Fire Zone 278 Eastern Lassen County,
  Fire Zone 420 Northern Sierra Front including Carson City,
  Douglas, Storey, Southern Washoe, Western Lyon, and Far
  Southern Lassen Counties, Fire Zone 423 West Humboldt Basin in
  Pershing County and Fire Zone 458 Northern Washoe County.

* WINDS...For Tuesday: West winds 10-20 mph with gusts to 30 mph
  with outflow winds near thunderstorms to 50 mph. For Wednesday:
  West winds 15-25 mph with gusts to 35 mph.

* HUMIDITY...Afternoon humidities between 11 and 17 percent each
  day. Recoveries Tuesday night 50-70 percent in most valleys
  with 25-35 percent on mid-slopes.

* THUNDERSTORMS...Scattered but mainly wet and slow moving storms
  Monday, becoming faster moving and more prone to new fire starts
  Tuesday. No thunderstorms forecast Wednesday in the watch area.

* IMPACTS...This is a classic fire weather pattern with lightning
  potentially creating new fires followed by thunderstorm
  outflows, gusty zephyr winds, and drier air resulting in fire
  spread. Be prepared for a busy period of new fires if the
  forecast pans out.

* CONFIDENCE...Confidence in this scenario remains medium as
  predicting thunderstorm coverage and impacts this far out can be
  an iffy proposition.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Avoid outdoor activities that can cause a spark near dry vegetation,
such as yard work, target shooting, or campfires. Follow local
fire restrictions. Check weather.gov/reno for updates and
livingwithfire.info for preparedness tips.

...Sierra Storms Starting to Build...

Isolated thunderstorms are starting to build over the high Sierra
as of 1 PM Saturday. This trend will continue through the mid and
late afternoon, with isolated storms along the Sierra between
Mammoth, Sonora Pass, Lake Tahoe, Donner Pass, and Quincy. Most of
the storms will be along or near the crest.

Storms will be slow moving so they could drop heavy rainfall in
spots. Strong outflow winds, lightning, small hail, and rapid
temperature drops are also likely with any storms.

With storms developing, now is the time to consider seeking sturdy
shelter if out in the mountains or on Sierra lakes.
