The region was under a severe thunderstorm warning until about 9:50 p.m., when the National Weather Service canceled it for much of the area.

The NBC10 First Alert Weather Team issued a First Alert from 2 p.m. to midnight for all neighborhoods as a day that will reach highs in the 70-degree range turned dangerous by midday and into the evening, with winds gusting between 35-45 mph or more.
