.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
THE AIR MASS WAS TYPICALLY MOIST FOR THIS TIME OF THE YEAR SO
SCATTERED AFTERNOON STORMS ARE EXPECTED, ESPECIALLY AS BOUNDARY
INTERACTIONS OCCUR OVER THE INTERIOR.  AN UPPER LEVEL LOW IN THE
NORTHEASTERN GULF OF MEXICO MAY LEND A LITTLE MORE COOLING ALOFT
COMPARED TO RECENT DAYS, SO A FEW STRONGER STORMS ARE EXPECTED.

THE MAIN HAZARD WILL BE FREQUENT LIGHTNING STRIKES IN ISOLATED
STRONG STORMS. IF YOU CAN HEAR THUNDER...YOU ARE CLOSE ENOUGH TO BE
STRUCK AND SHOULD MOVE TO A SAFE INDOOR LOCATION. GUSTY WINDS 40 TO
50 MPH ARE ALSO POSSIBLE.
