July 23, 2013 - Lightning activity increased as predicted throughout the central and southern Sierra - a total of 7,330 lightning strikes were recorded in the 24-hour period from 6:00 Monday to 6:00 am today.

2,523 lightning bolts struck National Forests in California: 1,071 on the Sequoia National Forest, 604 for the Sierra National Forest, 406 on the Inyo National Forest and 106 for the Eldorado National Forest, among others.

Reconnaissance via air tac planes and ground crews will attempt to locate new fire starts. Most thunderstorms dropped moderate to heavy precipitation in the affected areas.

The National Weather Service in Sacramento states that the potential for scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms will spread across the interior of Northern California today into Wednesday. The increase in cloud cover will moderate temperatures somewhat today and Wednesday, then warmer weather returns for the end of the week.
