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 increase in cloud cover will moderate temperatures somewhat today and Wednesday, then warmer weather returns for the end of the week.
