Wind advisory issued for Sunday

Posted October 30, 2017

Let's handle the rain first.

Heavy rain is expected to continue. At times, it will be heavy. In this case, it rolls in overnight into Monday morning and it peaks at around 90 miles per hour at about 6000 feet. By the morning drive to work and school, any remaining showers will be tapering off. 2-4"+ is likely". A lakeshore flood warning is also in effect from 8 a.m.to 8 p.m.as the high winds create severe waves along the Lake Ontario shoreline. Main concerns include flooding of roads and poor drainage areas. "If you enjoy a location close to a brook or stream you should be prepared for the possibility that it may breach its banks later tomorrow or tomorrow night". The Susquehanna and Delaware Rivers will have rises as well. This will allow for continued widespread rain with the potential for flash flooding.

Trump says classified JFK files will be made public
There is some doubt whether Trump will follow through with allowing the National Archives to dispense the documents in full. Most of the files are believed to be from the 1960s and 1970s, stemming from the 1963 assassination and aftermath.

Synoptically, or from the larger view perspective, wind will be strong out of the Southeast. Winds of this strength can take down trees and subsequent power lines which means you should plan on power outages. A flash-flood watch for the area remains in effect until 4 a.m. Monday, stemming from steady rain that could turn heavy at times Sunday night, resulting in at least an inch of new precipitation. As the kids head out trick-or-treating, the weather should be fairly seasonable in the upper 40s and lower 50s with mainly clear skies. However, some of the mountains will be cooler. Be careful driving Monday morning! Early morning highs in the 60s, then falling in the afternoon. I'll say this, many of New England's fabled weather events weren't forecasted very well.
