...Sierra Storms Starting to Build...
Isolated thunderstorms are starting to build over the high Sierra
as of 110 PM Monday. This trend will continue through the late
afternoon, with isolated-scattered storms along the Sierra
between Tioga Pass, Sonora Pass, Lake Tahoe, Donner Pass, and
Susanville. Storms will likely push into the Western Nevada
Sierra Front by late afternoon or early evening.
Storms will be slow moving so they will 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.
