The persistent wind gusts may result in a few isolated power outages across the area. Loose items left outside will likely be blown around by the wind. Be sure to secure your garbage can and any patio furniture that may be outside.
Driving, especially in a high profile vehicle, will be a bit challenging on east-west roadways with the strong southerly winds.
Clouds will be on the increase by early Friday and while there will be a breeze, the strongest winds will ease by Thursday evening. Rain chances return later Friday and into the weekend.
