Heavy rain today through tonight, then strong winds early Monday

The winds will be strong enough to knock down trees, cause minor property damage and power outages.

The blast of severe weather has prompted a series of alerts for counties throughout the region, including Cayuga. The heaviest rain is expected to arrive Sunday afternoon and continue into the evening and overnight hours, eventually tapering off from south to north as our storm lifts north up the coast. Many tree limbs are still retaining leaves, which will add surface area for the winds to affect, making these branches a hazard to any nearby wires. Be careful driving Monday morning! Farther inland and for most of us, the strongest winds will come as the storm wraps up and lifts north into Upstate New York, New England, and eventually eastern Canada into Monday. Winds could gust to hurricane force from Westerly to Narragansett to Newport to New Bedford to Cape Cod.and all the coastal communities in between.

Residents are advised the area could see 2 inches of rain on Cape Ann, almost 2 in Boston and close to 4 out west by Great Barrington. But before then, our coastal storm will pack a punch with the potential for flash flooding and damaging wind gusts.

A Wind Advisory is also in effect for all of central and northeastern Pennsylvania.


"Flash flooding in urban and poor-drainage areas, including streets and in homes and businesses, is possible", the alert said.

Wind gusts could reach speeds of 50-60 miles per hour. Late Monday night the winds will diminish a bit and the skies will clear. How much wind ends up at the surface, where we all live, as opposed to say at 2000 feet above us, is also still a bit of a question.

There will be a chance of snow showers before noon on Tuesday, but the day will warm to a high near 46 degrees. The showers will be more widespread in nature with some very short breaks in the showers.
