Lightning Impact: MODERATE
Frequent cloud to ground lightning is expected. Flash rates will be 46 to 80 strikes per 15 minutes (3 to 6 strikes per minute) for any storm that develops. People outdoors should move indoors upon first incidence of lightning. Indoor safety rules, such as unplugging appliances, should be heeded.
