High Wind Watch in effect for portions of the Twin Tiers 1 pm Sunday through Monday. The chance for wind gusts over 60 mph possible at times.
We’ll be enjoying a warmer weekend than average in the coming days, but there will be plenty of rain to deal with as well, plus hazardously high winds.
Skies will clear gradually going into tonight, with lows hovering near average at around 18 degrees. A sunny day is in store until around noon, when the clouds from the next weathermaker enter the region. We will remain dry in the Twin Tiers until early evening when the possibility of a wintry mix moves into the area. This will quickly turn to rain, and the heaviest rainfall will occur during the overnight hours on Saturday going into Sunday.
Showers will linger throughout Sunday, and a high wind watch has been issued by the NWS for much of the Twin Tiers. Sustained winds will be around 25-40 miles per hours, with gusts of up to 60 miles per hour possible. This can create dangerous driving conditions, especially if you are driving a high profile or top-heavy vehicle, so be very cautious on the roadways. Falling trees and power lines are also a possibility, so be prepared for potential power outages and stay alert in case of flying debris.
