SEATTLE (AP) — Forecasters say thunderstorms that moved through Oregon and Washington on Monday will flare up again Tuesday.

Because of the risk that lightning will start more wildfires, the National Weather Service has a red flag warning in effect for most of both states. The thunderstorms also could be accompanied by gusty winds, hail and flash flooding, especially on lands scorched by wildfires.

Forecasters say showers could linger over the Northwest into Wednesday. The good news for people uncomfortable with Monday’s heat is that temperatures should be back to normal by Wednesday.
