High wind warning for many parts of CNY


A high wind warning is in effect for Onondaga, Cayuga, Seneca, Madison, Oneida, Oswego, Jefferson, Lewis, Wayne, Ontario, Herkimer and Saint Lawrence counties the afternoon.


A wind advisory is in effect for Tompkins, Cortland, Chenango, Otsego and Steuben counties through 2pm.


A high wind warning means that strong and damaging winds will occur soon during the time outlined. Sustained winds of 40 mph will occur for one or more hours, or winds will gusts 58 mph or higher for one or more hours. Damage to trees, power lines, and property are possible with winds of this magnitude. In this particular case, the highest risk for the very highest wind will be across the higher elevations of central and northern New York, plus over and east of Lake Ontario and up the Saint Lawrence valley.


A wind advisory means that sustained winds of 30 mph and/or wind gusts of 45 mph are expected. This could cause some minor damage to trees, power lines and very weak structures.



If your area has a high wind warning, here is what you should do:
-- Damaging winds will likely occur across parts of the warned area. Stay inside and away from windows. The highest winds will likely occur across the highest elevations of our area and near lakeshore communities.

-- Be prepared for trees blocking roadways and for power outages.

-- Have a battery operated radio, and several flashlights available and in working order.

-- Keep an eye on Interactive Doppler and Triple Doppler radars on CNYcentral.com.

-- Keep your phone with your CNYcentral mobile app turned on so if warnings are issued you will know.

-- Periodically check NBC-3, CBS-5 and CW-6 for updates on the weather and additional warnings.
