... Strong thunderstorm over eastern portion of Lake Tahoe...

At 217 PM PDT, Doppler radar was tracking a strong thunderstorm near
Spooner Summit, or 7 miles south of Incline Village, moving north at
10 mph.

Heavy rain, small hail and wind gusts up to 50 mph will be possible
with this storm.

Locations impacted include...
Incline Village, Crystal Bay, Spooner Summit, Mount Rose, including
highways 28, 431 and 50.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Hikers and boaters near the East Shore of Lake Tahoe should move
indoors or inside a vehicle. Remember, lightning can strike out to
10 miles from the parent thunderstorm. If you can hear thunder, you
are close enough to be struck by lightning. Move to safe shelter
now! Do not be caught on the water in a thunderstorm.

... Thunderstorms continue to develop...

* at 1 PM, scattered storms continue to develop across western
Nevada and the Sierra. Through 3 PM the greatest concentration
of storms will be from roughly along a Reno/Tahoe to Carson
Valley to Hawthorne line. Storm movement is to the north-
northwest at 10-15 mph.

* Flash flooding is the primary hazard from storms today with
rainfall amounts exceeding 1 inch per hour likely. Storms can
also produce lightning, accumulating hail, and strong outflow
winds to 50 mph.

* If you're out on one of the many area lakes or trails, now is
the time to consider getting to safe shelter before lightning
becomes a serious hazard. Also do not set up Camp near a creek
bed that easily channel flash floods. People near flash flood
prone areas such as steep terrain and burn scars should be
prepared to respond quickly if flooding is observed.
