Happy Birthday America! Temperatures are cooling, but thunderstorms make a comeback.



Forecast

  • Today:  Moisture moving in from the south will keep clouds increasing through the day. Thunderstorms will also be the case in the Basin and Northern California after we get some daytime heating. A RED FLAG WARNING is in effect for these areas due to the gusty storm winds mixed with dry lightning. New fires will have the ability to spread rapidly. Temperatures will run a few degrees cooler due to the clouds and ridge breaking down.
  • Tonight:  Tonight, clouds will linger a bit, and a few showers may be possible overnight. Temperatures cool down to mild around the region.
  • Tomorrow:  Monday, we sit under partly cloudy skies in the morning. Daytime heating will be ramping up thunderstorms as moisture moves in from the south. Thunderstorms will extend from the Basin and Northern California over the Cascade Line and some will be possible in the west side valleys.

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?

Wind

We feel the wind almost every single day; but what causes it? Find out in Today's "Ask the Meteorologist!"
