AFTERNOON MAY PRODUCE LOCALLY HEAVY RAINFALL AMOUNTS LEADING TO
PONDING OF WATER ON ROADWAYS AND MINOR FLOODING OF LOW-LYING AND
POOR DRAINAGE AREAS.

.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
ANY SHOWERS AND STORMS TODAY WILL BE CAPABLE OF PRODUCING WIND
GUSTS GREATER THAN 35 KNOTS AS ACTIVITY MOVES QUICKLY OFF TO THE
