Becoming Windy and Colder This Afternoon.
Winds will increase to between 20 and 30 mph this afternoon with gusts of 40 mph as a strong cold front moves through the region. Showers are expected to develop and a few of these may produce thunder along with small ice pellets and even brief snow showers. No accumulation is expected due to the brief duration and warm ground but visibility could briefly be reduced. These stronger showers may also produce stronger wind gusts of 45-50 mph which could cause driving difficulties and blow around loose, unsecured objects.
