The main concerns are wind and the heavy rain. It’s going to be very windy and not just because of the thunderstorms rolling through. A very strong low pressure center is going to move through our area and bring with it constant 30-40 mph winds and wind gust near 50 mph. Rain will be heavy at times with several inches possible. Flooding rains and constant wind means there will be a chance for trees coming down into powerlines.

There is also a chance for hail and isolated tornadoes, as well.
