Strong and potentially damaging winds will be moving through the Tri-State area Thursday, with gusts reaching 40-50 miles an hour in some spots.
The winds follow a nasty coastal storm that slammed the tri-state area with heavy rain and strong winds Wednesday.
Conditions should dry up overnight and clouds will give way to partial sunshine come Thursday, but strong winds on the backside of the system will whip across the region with expected speeds of 25-35 mph — and gusts up to 60 mph in some spots. A wind advisory was issued for parts of the tri-state for Wednesday night into Thursday.
The weather improves leading into the weekend, with sunny skies and low-to-mid 60s forecast for Friday and Saturday and a bit warmer, though cloudier, conditions expected on Sunday. The threat for more showers returns Monday.
Here is the 7-day forecast for the Tri-State area:
