While it remains uncertain if any thunderstorms will be able to develop, the potential for localized gusty winds, hail, brief heavy rain, and dangerous cloud to ground lightning exists. If any thunderstorms are able to develop, they will be the hit and miss variety. Nonetheless, if you hear thunder it means you are close enough to get struck by lightning and you need to head indoors immediately. WMOHEADER UGC MAZ017>024-RIZ001>008 VTEC TIME…MOT…LOC
