Thunderstorms forecast, power still out to some

Genoa, Nev. — Thunderstorms forecast for this afternoon are predicted to be wetter and more widespread, according to a statement issued by the National Weather Service on Sunday.

The prospect of more moisture has prompted the cancellation of a fire weather watch.

"Thunderstorms will still be capable of strong outflow wind gusts up to 60 mph, however storms will be wetter with the potential for one or two strong storms producing flash flooding," forecasters said.

Saturday's thunderstorm that rolled through Carson Valley had winds clocked at 78 mph.

The storms are expected to develop along the Sierra from Mammoth Lakes to Lake Tahoe around midday and then move north and east into northeast California and Western Nevada during the evening.

Forecasters suggest that anyone outside have a plan to seek shelter should a thunderstorm develop.
