...A BRIEF PERIOD OF 35 TO 45 MPH WIND GUSTS MAY RESULT IN A FEW
DOWNED TREES AND ISOLATE POWER OUTAGES BETWEEN 2 AND 8 PM THIS
EVENING...

A strong cold front will cross the region this afternoon and early
this evening. A band of scattered showers may accompany this cold
front and result in a brief period of 35 to 45 mph wind gusts.
Given that we still have fully leafed trees...the potential exists
for a few downed trees and isolated power outages. The main time
of concern is between 2 and 8 pm this evening.
