Winds are forecast to increase through the day on Wednesday ahead of an approaching cold front. Some strong to locally damaging wind gusts are possible late Wednesday night into early Thursday morning.

Wednesday afternoon: Winds 5 to 15 MPH with gusts to 25 MPH possible.
Wednesday evening: Winds increasing to 10 to 20 MPH and gusts up to 30 MPH.
Overnight Wednesday: Winds 15 to 30 MPH inland, 25 to 40 MPH along the shore.
---Gusts of 35 to 45 MPH inland and 45 to 55 MPH along the shore. A few gusts could be locally higher, especially if any convection (thunderstorms) reach Connecticut.

The strongest winds will be between about 11 p.m. Wednesday and 6 a.m. Thursday.

A cold front brings a period of moderate to heavy rain and possibly some thunder around or shortly after midnight. Temperatures Wednesday night are forecast to rise into the low 50's in many areas, but as the cold front passes, temperatures hold steady in or fall through the 40's on Thursday. Winds should increase again during the day on Thursday, but are not expected to be as strong as late Wednesday night into early Thursday morning.
