Temperatures will push into the low 80s, ushering in showers and heavy thunderstorms in time for the lunch hour Thursday.
The storms will result in wind gusts between 60 and 80 mph. Wind speeds this high are capable of downing trees and power lines and resulting in widespread power outages.
Blinding downpours will accompany the strong winds. Drivers should exercise caution.
