...THUNDERSTORMS WITH GUSTY WINDS THIS AFTERNOON...

WIDELY SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS WILL CONTINUE DEVELOPING ACROSS
NORTHERN ILLINOIS AND NORTHWESTERN INDIANA THIS AFTERNOON. THE
STRONGEST THUNDERSTORMS WILL PRODUCE TORRENTIAL DOWNPOURS, 
FREQUENT LIGHTNING, AND GUSTY WINDS STRONG ENOUGH TO DOWN SMALL 
TREE LIMBS AND TENTED STRUCTURES. MANY AREAS WILL STAY DRY,
HOWEVER. KEEP AN EYE TO THE SKY, AND MOVE INDOORS IF YOU HEAR 
THUNDER.
