Possible Thunderstorms in Los Angeles County – NBC Los Angeles

The National Weather Service warned of possible thunderstorms and wind gusts in parts of Los Angeles County from midnight Tuesday through Wednesday night.

On its Twitter page, the weather service warned of elevated fire danger “over the next week due to hot conditions with low humidity.”

The agency noted “a risk of dry lightning” and warned that “any new fire starts will grow rapidly.”

The forecast called for clear skies through Tuesday night, followed by partly cloudy conditions and a 20% chance of showers and thunderstorms after midnight.

Temperatures will range from the upper 50s to the mid 60s overnight, with winds reaching 35 mph in some areas.

With monsoon moisture flowing into Southern California from Santa Barbara County, storms will be more frequent over mountains and deserts on Wednesday, according to the NWS.

Thunderstorms could produce strong gusty winds and brief heavy rain.

Meanwhile, a drier southwest flow will develop on Thursday, with a slight chance of more thunderstorms in the afternoon, mainly over the mountains, followed by drier and warmer conditions Friday and Saturday.

The weather service advised people to take precautions during thunderstorm activity, saying: “When thunder roars, stay indoors.”
