A year ago tonight, after a day of record setting heat, this thunderstorm complex arrived from the remnants of tropical storm Fausto. Lightning from this storm sparked numerous wildfires over the following days. Gusty winds in excess of 70mph were also observed that night.
Here's the latest satellite imagery combined with lightning flash density overlaid. As you can see, we have a very active line of thunderstorms off the coast.
Strong, erratic outflow winds of 50mph are possible with these thunderstorms.
