RED FLAG WARNING in effect from 1 pm this afternoon to 5 am PDT Monday for Northeast California for scattered dry thunderstorms. Low pressure off the California coast will produce an unstable air mass leading to development of isolated to scattered thunderstorms this weekend. Many storms today will produce little to no rainfall due to dry air above the surface. By Sunday more storms will become wetter but shorter rainfall duration is expected due to increased storm motion.
