Thunderstorms are common in Yosemite, especially in the afternoon at higher elevations. If you get caught in one, don't risk turning into a human lightning rod. Avoid exposed places and metal railings at vista points - and don't take shelter under lone trees. If all else fails, lay down flat on the ground. It may not be dignified, but it's safe.
