Lightning is a concern in the Sierra on Tuesday

The monsoon is tracking Northern California on Tuesday with a chance of lightning, which can be a concern in the summer due to the potential for wildfire. Meteorologist Tamera Berg said showers and thunderstorms are possible. The best chances for rain will line up across the Sierra from the afternoon to early evening. If a storm does develop, it will likely bring lightning, some rain and thunderstorms, Berg said. Light hail or gusty winds may also occur. Storms like this, during this time of year, can cause problems due to lightning sparking new fires. There will be quieter days for the rest of the week as the monsoon begins to track further away from KCRA’s coverage area 3. Why lightning is a concern According to the National Interagency Fire Center, over the past five years lightning has caused an average term 418 fires per year in Northern California. And based on Cal Fire statistics, five of the state’s 10 largest wildfires have been started by lightning, including the August 2020 Composite fire. That was the largest wildfire in state history.
