Klamath Falls, Ore.– Lightning activity is expected to increase to a level 3 this afternoon as thunderstorms move through the area. Klamath and Lake counties in Oregon and Modoc and Siskiyou counties in northern California are under a red flag warning due to the dry conditions and chance for lighting strikes to ignite forest fires. That red flag warning is in effect until 11 tonight… and forestry crews are staging in anticipation of more wildfires, as they’re released from mopping other fires in the region.
