Thunderstorms with abundant lightning are likely across the region the next few days.

A low pressure system offshore will bring several rounds of thunderstorms to the area, according to the National Weather Service, which issued a Fire Weather Watch from Wednesday afternoon through Thursday evening

Scattered storms are likely Wednesday and Thursday afternoons and evenings. These storms are following an extended period of hot and dry weather.

The lightning activity level is 3 on a 1-6 scale.  The storms will have some rainfall.

Any fires that develop will likely spread rapidly. Outdoor burning is not recommended.
