- An unusually strong cold front will be crossing the area during the overnight hours Tuesday night into Wednesday morning.
- Winds will be quite strong, even outside of thunderstorms, ahead of the cold front leading to areas of wind damage.
- Main severe parameters with any storms will be destructive winds and even an isolated tornado, along with heavy rainfall and possible flash flooding.

On a self-promotion note....Meteorologist Trent Okerson and I have tested the waters by producing a Webisode Series called, Breeding Extreme Weather & Climate. To hear more of our thoughts on tomorrow night's severe weather threat, plus some random rambling, you can watch here in the player below. We hope that our set/humor/graphics/appearance all grow with time. :) Episode 2 will be headed your way Tuesday afternoon! Enjoy.

Widespread wind damage will be the primary threat but an isolated tornado cannot be rules out either. To the right is the Day 4 (Tuesday/Tuesday Night) outlook for severe weather from the Storm Prediction Center.
