Severe Thunderstorm Warning
I just received in my inbox a severe thunderstorm warning from the Weather Channel. It reads as it mostly applies to southern Humboldt at this time. I see no indication of it on doppler radar. Still, best batten down the hatches:
US SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WARNING FROM 4:10PM PST SAT UNTIL 4:45PM PST SAT THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN EUREKA CALIFORNIA HAS ISSUED A * SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WARNING FOR...

Update: Yet another false alarm it seems. I kinda figured as doppler radar didn't look like thunder and lightening activity to me. I did think I heard thunder off in the distance a few times last night, but think it might have been my imagination.
