A significant dry layer of air below mid level precipitation is
causing significant evaporative cooling within rain shafts and
virga. Thus showers may produce localized sudden squalls of up to
45 mph which will make travel hazardous especially for high
profile vehicles. In addition light objects may be blow away by
the sudden squalls. These winds may also cause hazy conditions
with blowing dust.
