Some gusty winds are possible with any showers or thunderstorms this afternoon and evening. This is due to a layer of dry air beneath any rain showers or storms. As rain falls into dry air, it evaporates and creates an area of much cooler air. This "heavier" cold air then rushes to the surface, causing gusty winds as it spreads out horizontally. In this kind of environment, even rain showers can produce winds over 40 mph.
