A strong cold front and line of strong to severe thunderstorms will then move into western portions of the area by late afternoon on Thursday and race across the rest of the area through Thursday evening. The main threat from these thunderstorms will be damaging winds and large hail, although an isolated tornado cannot be ruled out.
