If on or near Stampede or Boca Reservoirs or Lake Tahoe, get out of the water and move indoors or inside a vehicle. Remember, lightning can strike out to 10 miles from the parent thunderstorm. If you can hear thunder, you are close enough to be struck by lightning. Move to safe shelter now! Do not be caught on the water in a thunderstorm. Hikers and campers should seek shelter in a vehicle if possible. Tents and trees are unsafe shelters during thunderstorms. Stay away from creeks and streams as water levels may rise rapidly near thunderstorms.

June 27, 2021 at 8:55 AM Dangerous heat event for Northern Sacramento Valley, isolated mountain thunderstorms this week. The heat has returned to NorCal and we will see widespread triple digits again today with highs as hot as 114 over the northern Sacramento Valley. Overnight lows will also remain warm into early this week mainly in the northern Sacramento Valley and northern Foothills where some locations will only fall into the low 80s. This will bring high to very high heat risk today and heat safety should be practiced. Some cooling is expected on Monday as a system passes just to our west but widespread moderate to locally high heat risk will continue. Moisture will push north this week and that will bring a chance for showers and thunderstorms over the Sierra crest from I-80 south. The better chances for thunderstorms are expected to remain to the east of the crest but any thunderstorms that due develop in our area will produce only limited rainfall.
