...Local wind gusts 35 to 45 mph expected thunderstorms this
afternoon...

As thunderstorms continue to increase in coverage during the peak
heating of the day...some of the thunderstorms will produce wind
gusts between 35 and 45 mph as they dissipate and rebuild with
time.

Some thunderstorms may gather together into short lines. These
groups of thunderstorms may produce higher wind gusts, ranging
from 45 to 55 mph at times.

The stronger winds will cause some tree limbs to break and toss
around loose outdoor objects. Weakened trees may topple and brief
power interruptions may occur where tree limbs hit power lines.

In addition to the stronger wind gusts, rainfall amounts between
three quarters of an inch to one and a half inches will be
possible where multiple thunderstorms develop and move across the
same location.

Frequent and dangerous lightning and small hail will also be
possible, so be sure to seek shelter indoors away from the storms.

The vast majority of the thunderstorms should continue to move
east, northeast around 30 mph this afternoon.

The coverage and intensity of the thunderstorms will gradually
decrease toward sunset.
