Offshore, to the southwest of Eureka, lightning is brightening the night sky. One of our reporters tells us they heard thunder also about 6:20 p.m. Then another reported lightning and thunder about 6:30 p.m.

The National Weather Service in Eureka earlier issued a “Special Marine Warning including the Waters from Cape Mendocino to Pt. Arena CA from 10 to 60 nm and Waters from Pt. St. George to Cape Mendocino CA from 10 to 60 nm until 4:30 PM PST.” (See image they issued at the same time below.) Though that time is past, it seems likely that boats in the area should exercise caution.

As of 6:39 p.m., we’re seeing quite of bit of lightning west of Fort Bragg also.
