Big Lightning Day
There were more than 4300 lightning strikes Saturday across a fairly narrow across the Interior stretching from the upper Tanana Valley to the upper Kobuk valley. In spite of deep moisture, rainfall amounts were mostly underwhelming, generally a quarter inch or less, though there were isolated reports of around an inch of rain. At Keystone Ridge, it thundered intermittently from 6pm to 11pm.
