There are still a few uncertainties into how this will all play out. One of them is regarding the clouds and rain parts of the area saw during the morning hours. If enough destabilization occurs, scattered thunderstorms will likely develop after 3 PM.

Large hail and tornadoes will be possible initially, but as the storms merge into a line, damaging wind gusts will be the primary threat. In addition to the severe threat, heavy rainfall will also be possible, which could lead to localized flash flooding.
