The National Weather Service has issued a Wind Advisory for the entire Finger lakes and Central New York regions.
It runs from 6 p.m. until 8 a.m. on Monday. Forecasters with the NWS say gusts of 40-50 mph will be possible
While this wind event is not expected to be as damaging as the one that made its way through the region on Friday- some power outages and minor damage will be possible.
High-profile vehicles traveling along I-81 and the New York State Thruway are also encouraged to take it slow and use caution.
There will also be a solid amount of rainfall on Sunday. Don’t expect any flash flooding, given how dry it has been over the last 30 days, but that will add to forecasting complications with the wind.
It gets very windy east of the Genesee Valley and south of Watertown, NY tonight. West winds 30 to 40 mph with gusts up to 55 mph expected. Widespread showers today will change over to a wet snow tonight. Minor accumulations expected across the higher terrain. pic.twitter.com/TCeZlSReAy

After a very dry March, we are making up for that today!
With the combination of rain and melting snow over the past couple days, parts of Jefferson & Lewis counties have flood watches in place! ?️ pic.twitter.com/daFW5ChhR9
