Thunderstorms Explode With Frequent Lightning & Wind
Well we knew it was coming and I am glad I warned you here on the blog. There will be a few thunderstorm warnings as storms move through the area between 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. I think there will be some isolated wind gusts to 60 mph. The other big threat will be the nearly continuous cloud to ground lightning expected as there is an unsually high amount of ice at the top of these thunderheads that are quickly building to over 40,000 feet where temperatures are near zero degrees. Movement on these storms will be to the southeast at about 10 mph. Keep an eye to the northwest because that is where the storms are coming from.
