Monday’s thunderstorm activity in the foothills is expected to continue into Tuesday

Thunderstorms are possible over the mountains and in the valley continuing today and into tonight.  A low-pressure system off the California Coast has been stationary and slow moving, causing a buildup of thunderstorm activity.

An active thunderstorm cell on Monday moved through in Placer County causing several lightening strikes.

The National Weather service in Sacramento said dry strikes are possible into Tuesday.  A Red Flag Warning has been issued for Northern California, especially in the mountain areas due to fire danger.  The lightning strikes could become wide spread as the system moves across the interior portions of the region.

Between Sunday and Monday, there were 120 reported lightening strikes in the region with no reported fires.

A severe thunderstorm warning continued into Monday afternoon with the threat for North Central Nevada County in Central California.  The National Weather Service Doppler Radar indicated the thunderstorm was capable of producing quarter size hail.

Thunderstorm activity should decrease by the end of Tuesday with dry and milder weather returning for the remainder of the week.
