It expires during the late-afternoon hours, but to see precisely when it expires in your community click here.
In the meantime, sustained winds of 25 to 35 mph can be expected, with gusts to 50 mph. Unsecured objects could be blown around due to the wind gusts, and it’s possible that a few scattered power outages are reported.
Areas in Western New York are included in a High Wind Warning. So, if you’re traveling west on I-90 use extreme caution. Gusts could exceed 60 mph in Monroe County.
High profile vehicles throughout the region will see the greatest impact from winds.
Strong to potentially damaging winds will affect the region this morning. The strongest winds (featuring gusts to 60 to 70 mph) will be found across far western New York, where a High Wind Warning remains in effect. pic.twitter.com/UX52bFpTO4

As strong winds enter our region, downed power lines are possible. Always treat downed wires as if they are live, as even dormant wires can be dangerous. If trees or other debris fall, wait and let the professionals clean it up as downed lines could be tangled within. pic.twitter.com/eZgR1fw1LK
