.DISCUSSION...
Gust fronts from thunderstorms earlier this evening are creating temporarily
high wind gusts. Winds are expected to be more out of the east to north east
as the evening progresses with wind speeds staying mainly under 10 mph. Showers
and thunderstorms have continually dissipated since sunset have cleared the incident
area. Some showers and thunderstorms are still possible into the overnight hours,
but coverage is expected to be spotty at best. Any storms in the surrounding area
have the potential to bring a sudden wind shift as well as higher wind speeds.
