Weather Outlook for July 15th, 2018 – Thunderstorms
Heat, monsoon moisture, and atmospheric instability will favor widespread thunderstorm development over our region today. Based on forecasts from the NWS the storms should start to fire around 2pm today.
Dry conditions on the ground with gusty winds near thunderstorms could create dangerous conditions for new fire starts. Fire crews are watching this close. A red flag warning is also in effect today over the region for dangerous fire conditions.
If you are outdoors today keep in mind new fires can start and spread quickly with the current conditions we have. We should see widespread thunderstorm activity this afternoon over Northern California and Southern Oregon. The activity will mostly be east of the Cascades according to current forecasts.
