GENERALLY TOWARD THE NORTHEAST AROUND 10 MPH BUT THUNDERSTORMS  
THAT FORM AS A RESULT OF BOUNDARY COLLISIONS WILL EXHIBIT SLOW AND  
ERRATIC MOVEMENT.  
   
FLOOD IMPACT
 
 
SLOW MOVING LIGHTNING STORMS WILL BE CAPABLE OF PRODUCING LOCALLY  
HEAVY RAINFALL THIS AFTERNOON. RAINFALL AMOUNTS OF 2 TO 4 INCHES  
IN A 60 TO 90 MINUTE PERIOD WILL BE POSSIBLE IN A FEW SPOTS WHICH  
WILL CAUSE TEMPORARY FLOODING OF ROADWAYS AND LOW LYING AREAS.

SCATTERED TO NUMEROUS LIGHTNING STORMS ARE EXPECTED TO DEVELOP  
OVER THE MAINLAND THIS AFTERNOON. SOME OF THE STORMS ARE EXPECTED  
TO PUSH TOWARD THE INTRACOASTAL AND NEARSHORE ATLANTIC WATERS.  
MARINERS ARE REMINDED THAT VARIABLE AND GUSTY WINDS CAN OCCUR WELL  
AWAY FROM THE HEAVIEST RAIN OF A THUNDERSTORM.  
   
DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN
 
WEDNESDAY THROUGH MONDAY.  
SCATTERED LIGHTNING STORMS ARE FORECAST TO CONTINUE INTO THE  
FOURTH OF JULY WEEKEND. THE PRIMARY THREATS WILL BE DANGEROUS  
LIGHTNING STRIKES, GUSTY WINDS, AND LOCALLY HEAVY RAIN. WHILE THE  
HIGHEST CHANCES FOR AFTERNOON THUNDERSTORMS IS EXPECTED ACROSS  
INLAND AREAS, COASTAL LOCATIONS WILL STILL SEE A THREAT OF  
LIGHTNING ACTIVITY EACH DAY.
