They are putting out a wind advisory for tonight/tomorrow morning as sustained winds will be 25-35 mph with gusts to 45 mph. These winds won't be associated with the line of storms. The line of storms could easily bring wind gusts to 65-70 mph.
Damaging wind continues to be the main threat with the line, but tornadoes are not out of the question.
This will be a fast moving line of storms. The line itself will probably be moving east at around 40mph. Individual storm cells could be moving 50-55mph.
