It's rare that we hear thunder out here, so it could be a nice change as long as lightening strikes do not start fires. The National Weather Service is reporting the possibility of thunderstorms in Southern California beginning this afternoon: "The threat of thunderstorm activity will begin this afternoon across the mountains and Antelope Valley. As upper level disturbances rotate across the region, the threat of showers and thunderstorms will spread to the entire region by tonight, continuing through Sunday." If it does rain in Los Angeles, it will likely happen on Saturday. The Service says dry lightning strikes are possible, which is prompting some fire concerns. We should also could be experiencing some extreme highs and lows along with increased humidity.
