Once the severe threat diminishes the winds will continue to howl as we see a 45°+ temperature drop into the night. Winds could gust to 50mph late night into the early portion of Thursday. Highs will only reach the 30s and with a feels like reading in the single digits in the morning and teens by late-day. Warmer air returns Friday and Saturday with just the slight chance for a sprinkle to start the weekend. Please stay weather aware later today and have a great one!
