Scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms are expected to
develop across the region today as a weak cold front dissipates

greatest between 1 pm and 8 pm. 

Some of this thunderstorm activity will move into the coastal waters
by mid to late afternoon. Mariners should be alert for wind gusts in
excess of 35 kt, small hail, frequent cloud to water lightning and 
localized visibilities of less than 1 NM.

Monitor conditions throughout the day and be prepared to take action

...1946...
Saint Louis MO was deluged with a record 8.78 inches of rain in 24 hours.
(The Weather Channel)
...1967...
The "sundance fire" in northern Idaho was started by lightning. Winds of 50
mph carried firebrands as much as ten miles in advance to ignite new fires,
and as a result, the forest fire spread twenty miles across the Selkirk
Mountains in just twelve hours, burning 56,000 acres. The heat of the fire
produced whirlwinds of flame with winds up to 300 mph which flung giant
trees about like matchsticks. (David Ludlum)
...1987...
Thunderstorms developing ahead of a sharp cold front produced severe
weather in the Upper Midwest during the afternoon and evening hours, with
Minnesota and eastern South Dakota hardest hit. A thunderstorm in west
central Minnesota spawned a tornado at Eagle Lake which killed one person
and injured eight others. A thunder- storm in eastern South Dakota produced
softball size hail at Warner. (The National Weather Summary) (Storm Data)
