The freezing rain is anticipated to develop Thursday morning before transitioning to regular rain, which will taper off Thursday night. The strong wind gusts are expected in the afternoon and early evening. 

Roadways and walkways could become icy and slippery, and isolated power outages and localized flooding are both possible.
