NWS Weather Bulletin: Red Flag Warning In Effect Today Until 9:00PM

Monday, July 27th, 2020

The prospect of thunderstorms and strong outflow winds have prompted forecasters at the National Weather Service office in Reno to issue a Red Flag Warning for our area.

The warning will be in effect until 9:00pm today for much of eastern California and western Nevada from the US-395 corridor eastward.

Isolated thunderstorms will develop this morning and become scattered by afternoon. Thunderstorms will start dry and transition to hybrid wet/dry storms in the afternoon.

Gusts up to 50mph are possible near any thunderstorms.

Lightning can create new fire starts and may combine with strong outflow winds to cause a fire to rapidly grow in size and intensity.

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.
