The NWS reports winds are expected to be sustained from 25 to 35 miles per house — with frequent gusts of up to 60 mph or more.
"Strong winds, in combination with heavy rain, could bring down whole trees, large tree limbs, power lines and unsecured objects," the meteorologists warn in their report.
They added that the high wind conditions "could pose a hazard to anyone out driving or walking," as well as homes and other structures near large trees.
Driving is also expected to be difficult during the wind storm, especially in high profile vehicles, and on elevated roadways and bridges.
Showers and thunderstorms also possible overnight from Wednesday into Thursday morning, with some storms possibly producing heavy rainfall.
North Haven Patch will provide updates on any possible power outages that may occur in relation to the expected high winds.
