I have a question for any weather buffs in /r/SeattleWA. What kind of weather scenarios can trigger thunderstorms in Western Washington?

A bot in /r/seattle suggested that I repost this question here. Hopefully this subreddit won't appear on /r/subredditdrama nearly as frequently as /r/seattle does.

The title is straightforward, I think. Local media loves talking about "snow scenarios"; well, what are our thunderstorm scenarios? Also, why do our thunderstorms tend to be dry, why are electrical storms with abundant rainfall (like they get on the east coast) rarer still? I can think of very few occurrences of the "thunderstorm with drenching rainfall"; one was in 2012, and the other occurred the next year.
