Not exactly sailing weather but it will be windy. Hopefully not so windy that we have to deal with the power being out but windy enough that it dries out some of the soggy weather we have had in the Hudson Valley. The National Weather Service has issued a High Wind Warning for most of the Hudson Valley starting tonight just around Oscar time and running through the Monday work day.
Over the weekend I drove by some of the place that Central Hudson parks trucks to be ready for possible power outages and it seemed there was a lot of activity. The actual warning for NOAA includes that gust could go up to 60 mph which with wet ground it a perfect combination for trees to come down.
Below is the National Weather forecast for the next day or two and a link to the wind warning for the next 24 hours.
