The R-C Morning Report for July 30
July 30, 2014
The flash flood watch for central Nevada moved west a bit to a line from Bridgeport to Yerington to Fallon. The watch goes into effect at noon, according to the National Weather Service. That doesn't mean that we'll be free of the slow moving storms, just that they won't be as widespread.
Lightning set several small single-tree fires across the Sierra Front, according to the Interagency Dispatch Center. We had a couple of those in Alpine County near Picketts Junction, on Pickett Peak, Willow Creek and near Hawkins Peak.
A man who walked out of the Walmart with two 19-inch monitors on Sunday was ordered to spend 60 days in jail Drew Owenself, 28, admitted a count of petit larceny for taking the monitors.
There's a chance of scattered thunderstorms today with a high temperature of 89 degrees under partly sunny skies. Wind will be calm, picking up to 5 mph in the afternoon.
