SAN DIEGO – The powerful air currents out of the east, which exceeded 100 mph in at least one instance,  pummeled San Diego County amid summer-like heat Wednesday and will continue into Thursday, according to Fox 5 Meterorologist Aloha Taylor.

The winds are expected to weaken overnight, then pick up again somewhat Thursday, Taylor said.

Gusts should calm down around 5 p.m. Thursday and slightly cooler temperatures should follow.
