If you are out on a patio or beach picnicing, pay attention to the weather tonight.

The National Weather Service has issued a thunderstorm warning with a focus on lightning.

The storm is moving southeast at 30MPH. Cloud to ground lightning, small hail and winds up to 
40MPH are expected with this storm.

Remember, if you can hear thunder, you are close enough to be struck by lightning. 

Hopefully it's another false alarm, but, better to be warned than oblivious.

Have a safe rest of your holiday and watch out for drunk drivers.
