Record warmth, gusty winds and rain through Thursday

The mild spell of record warmth will continue for a couple of more days along with a storm system approaching that will bring some gusty winds and rain to the area.

Record high temperatures will once again be challenged on Wednesday as highs climb into the low-to-mid 50s which is more typical of early April. The warmth will carry over into Thursday with many communities in the ABC 6 Weather First area likely to see records broken as highs are expected to be in the mid-to-upper 50s!

The wind will begin to ramp up on Wednesday with gusts up to around 25 mph. The wind will only increase Wednesday night and through the day on Thursday with gusts up to around 35 mph possible.

A storm system will move through the region leading to the chance of rain developing overnight into Thursday morning. A lull is possible during the late morning and afternoon before the cold front swings through by evening with additional rain chances. A rumble of thunder is also possible.

Any rain will come to end Thursday night.

Colder air will plunge into the region on Friday. A few flurries are possible as temperatures cool off into the 30s which will carry over through the weekend into next week.
