    Now that the rain has died down, don't let that sunshine fool you. High winds and wild weather should continue to pound the area Friday afternoon.

    The wind left in its wake downed power lines, torn-off roofs and fallen trees.

    Here is the rundown for the rest of Friday and Saturday's forecast:

    Friday evening:

    The rain will end, but the wind will become gusty everywhere. Temperatures will experience a huge drop over a short period of time between 5 and 10 p.m. depending on where you live.  A drop of 20 degrees is expected in just about three hours.

    A high wind warning remains in effect until midnight with wind gusts of 50 to 65 mph expected. The wind -- combined with the cold air -- will make it very uncomfortable for anyone not prepared for the colder weather.
