(BCN) — The National Weather Service on Tuesday said there will be enough moisture and lift in the air above the Bay Area late in the night and into early Wednesday for a slight chance of showers and thunderstorms. The area possibly affected extends from coastal North Bay areas to Big Sur in the south and the Diablo Range to the east.

Some of the storms could result in dry lightning, the weather service reported, saying this is a “low confidence high impact” situation. Fire danger is already high in the Bay Area and Northern California, as inland temperatures will reach triple digits Tuesday through at least Thursday, prompting an excessive heat watch.
