Strong Winds Expected To Gust Through Tri-State Area On Wednesday
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) – It looks like parts of the Tri-State area will be in for some wicked winds into Wednesday morning.
AccuWeather says that parts of the area could experience wind gusts of up to 45 mph. A wind advisory was in effect for parts of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut until 1 a.m. Wednesday.
Wednesday will be very windy at times with clouds and sunshine. The high will be 45 degrees and drop to 26 degrees at night.
Heavy rain also moved into the area around mid-afternoon and continued, heavily at times, Tuesday night before passing through the area.
The shore was under a wind advisory on Tuesday. Forecasters said the gusts were potentially strong enough to down power lines and blow around patio furniture and garbage cans.
Off the shore, a gale warning stands from 3 p.m. Tuesday until 6 p.m. Wednesday.
Forecasters said the wind could cause small tree limbs to fall which could also result in isolated power outages. Residents are urged to secure or bring inside any loose outdoor objects and to be careful while driving, especially in high-profile vehicles.
