The National Weather Service has issued a wind advisory for Connecticut, New York and New Jersey, which the agency says will be in effect from 10 p.m. tonight until 6 p.m. Thursday.
The NWS forecasts southeastern wind speeds between 20 to 30 miles per hour, with potential gusts up to 50 miles per hour throughout the evening. The winds are expected to develop into westerly windows and to expand throughout the entire tri-state area, according to the agency.
The NWS cautions the strong winds may knock down tree limbs and power lines, stating scattered power outages are expected.
The agency warns “winds this strong can make driving difficult, especially for high profile vehicles, in open areas and on elevated roads and bridges. Use extra caution.”
The NWS does not forecast any hazardous weather conditions occurring between today and Thursday other than the high winds.
