StormWatch 12 Forecast

While two new fires continue to burn in Douglas County, the heat only continues for Friday.



Forecast

  • Today:  With more triple digits and a continuation of the hot, dry conditions, a FIRE WEATHER WARNING remains in effect for central Douglas County, where both the Cable Crossing Fire and Stouts Fire are continuing to burn. As highs near 110 in some locations, a HEAT ADVISORY remains in effect for west side valleys. Expect mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies and highs well above average.
  • Tonight:  Mild to warm temperatures overnight will leave little relief from the heat. The HEAT ADVISORY continues for western valleys overnight.
  • Tomorrow:  Temperatures will still be in the 90's and triple digits, so the HEAT ADVISORY will remain in effect for western valleys. Expect partly cloudy skies and a slight chance for isolated showers and thunderstorms, mainly in northern California and along and east of the Cascades.

Lightning: Positive vs. Negative

Thunderstorms produce two types of lightning, when talking about electric charge. In today's "Ask the Meteorologist" we break down the difference between the two.

Positive vs. Negative Lightning

Most lightning strikes are negatively charged, but sometimes we see positively charged strikes as well. In this Ask the Meteorologist, we explain why positive strikes occur.

Sun Halos

When thin, high clouds are present, a ring sometimes appears around the sun. Why?
