Strong winds and sunny skies for Thursday

The storm has passed, but it left behind some windy weather.

“Gusts could be up to 45 miles per hour, a lot stronger than normal,” said National Weather Service meteorologist Alan Dunham. “If you have a partially rotted tree, I wouldn’t rule out the wind bringing some branches down or interfering with power lines.”

Breezes should be between 21 and 26 miles per hour throughout the day. Skies will stay sunny, with high temperatures climbing to 60 degrees. Wind gusts should die down this evening as temperatures sink into the upper 30s.

On Wednesday, turbulent skies generated lighting that struck one person on a golf course and a second bolt ignited a house fire in Lexington.

Today’s winds will abate by Friday, the weather service says.

“Friday will be a gorgeous, sunshiny day,” Dunham said. High temperatures should climb to 61 degrees, with clear skies through the afternoon. Some clouds could arrive in the evening as temperatures sink to 45 degrees. Scattered showers could fall overnight.

The weekend should start on a wet note, with rain falling “off and on during the course of the day,” Dunham said. “And we can’t rule out the chance of a thunderstorm in the afternoon.”

Skies on Saturday will be mostly cloudy, with high temperatures near 59 degrees. Rain should peter out overnight, as low temperatures cool to 43 degrees.

Sunday will be cooler but dry, with partly sunny skies and highs in the mid-50s. Some clouds should arrive in the afternoon, with low temperatures in the lower 40s.

Next week will start off dry and sunny, with normal temperatures and precipitation not expected until mid-week.
