Moisture will increase under southerly flow and combine with near record temperatures to create instability for scattered thunderstorms this afternoon. These thunderstorms will be capable of frequent lightning, small hail, and outflow winds of 50 to 60 mph. The strongest wind gusts will occur with storms in lower western Nevada valleys, where blowing dust may reduce visibility along Interstate 80, and Highways 50 and 95. – noaa.gov

Thunderstorms are forecasted again tomorrow at Squaw:

Tuesday: Isolated showers and thunderstorms after 1pm. Partly sunny, with a high near 58. Southwest wind between 10 and 15 mph, with gusts as high as 25 mph. Chance of precipitation is 20%.
