Threats

Any storm that develops this week could contain deadly cloud-to-ground lightning, torrential rainfall, and a damaging wind gust or two.

By Friday and the weekend, we may be dealing with a complex of storms or two dropping in from the north. Those could pack a punch. I’ll keep an eye on this. The main threat with these systems is straight-line winds.
