Severe thunderstorm conditions possible - late afternoon to late evening.

Large hail can damage property and cause injury.

Strong wind gusts can toss loose objects, damage weak buildings, break branches off trees and overturn large vehicles.

Remember, severe thunderstorms can produce tornadoes.

Be prepared for severe weather.

Take cover immediately, if threatening weather approaches.
