Strong winds will continue through the evening and late-night periods, but, with the passage of a significant cold front, the wind flow will change from south to northwest, but maintain a considerable amount of speed. As that happens, a band of rain and some stronger storms will swing through. This line of storms will contain periods of downpours, and some additional wind gusts that may exceed 40 mph at times. The risk for severe or tornado-producing storms is quite limited, but not a zero risk. Sky conditions will gradually clear Thursday morning with high pressure and drier air replacing the warmth and mugginess of the recent past. Lows by sunrise will fall to around the low and middle 40s west, upper 40s east with lingering clouds and departing showers. Increasing sunshine is forecast for Thursday afternoon with highs only reaching near 60°. The weekend looks uneventful with reinforcements of dry, cool air masses.
