According to the National Weather Service meteorologists are
tracking developing thunderstorms along the southern and eastern
shores of Lake Tahoe. These storms are nearly stationary.
Occasional lightning and gusty winds to 40 mph are possible with any
storm that develops.
Boaters on Lake Tahoe should be prepared for sudden wind shifts and a rapid increase in wave heights. Don't be caught on the water in a thunderstorm.
Strong wind gusts and lightning near thunderstorms
pose an immediate danger to boaters.
