> ... Fire Weather Watch in effect from late Thursday night through
> Friday evening for scattered lightning...
> The National Weather Service in Seattle has issued a Fire Weather
> Watch... which is in effect from late Thursday night through
> Friday evening.
> Scattered lightning is expected to develop sometime late Thursday
> night or Friday. Some precipitation is expected to accompany the
> storms... but quite a few lightning strikes will still fall outside
> the narrow rain shafts that come with the storms. Considering the
> abundant nature of the forecast lightning and the recent hot dry
> weather... this lightning episode has the potential to start a
> number of fires and keep initial attack crews busy.
> A Fire Weather Watch is issued when dry lightning or the
> combination of strong winds and low humidities are expected.
> Please pass this Fire Weather Watch on to crews in the field.
