light outdoor objects. Locally heavy rain will quickly reduce

urged to slow down and use extra caution to avoid hydroplaning.

These thunderstorms are producing an excessive amount of deadly cloud
to ground lightning. Seek shelter indoors and stay away from windows.
If you cannot seek shelter indoors... an enclosed vehicle can provide
safe shelter. Deadly lightning strikes can occur well ahead of an
approaching storm... prior to the arrival of rain and wind.
