The National Weather Service issued a wind advisory from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday for South Jersey, with possible gusts up to 45 mph. The highest winds are expected midday.
Occasional rain and a few downpours will have the capability of producing one to two inches of rain throughout most of South Jersey, with the heaviest rain likely during the morning hours.
There is also the chance for a few strong to severe thunderstorms. The Storm Prediction Center(SPC) has placed far South Jersey in a risk for severe thunderstorms on Thursday.
