NORFOLK -- The cold front that moved through Wednesday night will keep things cold and windy in the ABC13 viewing area.

Winds will remain in the 15-25 mph range, with gusts to 40 mph, throughout the day. Highs will only be around 40 degrees and wind chills will remain in the 20s for most of us, says 13News Now Meteorologist Julie Wilcox.

The National Weather Service has issued a red flag warning for Thursday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., meaning conditions are right for fires to quickly spread.  

A gale warning is in effect until 6 p.m. for the Chesapeake Bay from Smith Point to Windmill Point to New Point Comfort to Little Creek and Cape Henry.  

Wind advisories for the James River Bridge, the Coleman Bridge and the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel were in effect.

High winds along coastal North Carolina stopped ferry runs between Ocracoke and Cedar Island, Swan Quarter and Hatteras, according to the North Carolina Department of Transportation’s Ferry Division.

You don't have long to wait for a warm up. That's coming Friday with highs expected in the mid-50s and it should even warmer on Saturday.
