NWS: Potentially damaging 50-60 mph winds prompt advisories and warnings

There are going to be some serious winds across the region as the day progresses. It’s looking more likely that there will be some notable rain, too.

Here’s what the National Weather Service is expecting.

Western New York is going to see the strongest winds with parts of the I-90 corridor experiencing wind gusts in excess of 60 mph. It’s prompted the National Weather Service to issue a High Wind Warning for Monroe County in the Finger Lakes. [Read: High Wind Warning]

– The Finger Lakes, Central New York, and Southern Tier will all see moderately strong winds throughout the day, and into the early-morning hours on Monday. Wind gusts in excess of 50 mph are possible, which prompted a Wind Advisory to be issued. [Read: Wind Advisory]

The timing of the strongest winds is expected to be from the afternoon hours through early evening. Damage to trees and power lines are the primary concerns, according to forecasters with the National Weather Service.

There will also be a chance for some steady rain during the afternoon hours for parts of the region. It shouldn’t be a full-washout, though.
