“Some of the thunderstorms may produce gusts up to 60 knots over the marine area or even over the island itself in the pre-dawn hours of Thursday.”

The weather service statement added: “BWS staff will be monitoring the situation through the night.

“If severe thunderstorm signatures are detected, the watch will be upgraded to a warning.”

A gale force wind warning has also been posted for tonight and a small craft warning has been issued and will remain in place throughout Thursday.
