Weather service issues red flag warning

LAKE COUNTY – The National Weather Service has issued a red flag fire warning for Thursday based on the potential for lightning over interior Northern California, including Lake County.

The agency reported that a red flag warning will be in effect from 1 a.m. to 9 p.m. Thursday.

In Lake County, the warning specifically relates to elevations from 1,000 to 3,000 feet.

Within a few hours of the warning, about three lightning strikes were reported in the county between 6 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. Wednesday.

The concerns arise from an unseasonably strong low pressure system off the coast that are expected to move through Northern California on Thursday, the National Weather Service reported. The threat of thunderstorms is expected to increase as a result.

With the potential for rain comes concerns about lightning strikes, combined with dry fuels and gusty winds, the agency reported.

The National Weather Service reported that thunderstorms and gusty wind will diminish Thursday evening as the low pressure system moves east of the area.
