Potentially Dangerous Storm Brewing In Sierra; Flash Flood

RENO, Nev. (AP) — The National Weather Service has issued a flash flood warning south of Lake Tahoe and lake wind advisories in northeast California and western Nevada ahead of a potentially dangerous storm brewing in the Sierra.

The service issued a flash flood warning in California's Mono County Tuesday afternoon as thunderstorms began to produce heavy rain that could cause U.S. Highway 395 at Topaz Lake near the California-Nevada line.

Forecasters say strong to severe thunderstorms are possible in the region until 9 p.m., with erratic winds in excess of 50 mph, hail, moderate to heavy rain and dangerous lightning.
