Hurricane Dora reached Category 4 status yesterday with
sustained winds of 155 mph along with higher gusts. This
morning she is a Category 1 with sustained winds of 85
mph. Dora is forecast to continue to rapidly weaken as
she moves off to the NW at 9 mph over colder waters.

Today Will Be A Repeat Of Yesterdays Weather.

Not much has changed in the overall setup from yesterday.
Scattered t-storms are forecast to once again develop later
this afternoon, and continue well into the evening hours.
These storms will be of the hit and miss variety so not
everyone will see rainfall. This pattern will continue
into the weekend. The mountains will have the
best chance for rain.

A Flash Flood Watch goes into effect for Lincoln
County at noon today, and will be valid until late
this evening. Scattered t-storms will be capable
of producing locally heavy rainfall across the
Sacramento Mtn's today, which may lead to
localized flash flooding, especially over and
near the burn scar areas.
