High Wind Warnings and Power Outages For Parts the Hudson Valley

After an ice storm early last week and two snow storms in four days, you’d think we would have earned a break from old man winter. Apparently, that’s not the case.

After the snow moved out of our area late yesterday afternoon, the winds began to kick-up and while we were under a Wind Advisory, the National Weather Service has just bumped parts of the Hudson Valley up to a High Wind Warning in effective for Ulster and Dutchess counties until 7 tonight.

This means that residents in these counties could see sustained winds from 25-45 mph with gusts up to 60 mph throughout the remainder of this afternoon. As a result, the combination of tree limbs covered with heavy, wet snow and the wind gusts could lead to downed limbs or trees causing damage as well as scattered power outages.

Sullivan County remains under a Wind Advisory while other parts of the Hudson Valley remain under a Winter Storm Warning from the National Weather Service, with blowing and drifting snow, and the potential to have 1 to 3 more inches of accumulation as a result of some fast moving snow squalls.

Please exercise caution as you drive around this afternoon into this evening, you could encounter drifting snow, downed limbs, or even, power lines.
