November 27 2018

A windy Wednesday just flows off the tongue, if you can catch your breath. A Wind Advisory goes into effect at 6 AM and lasts through 4 PM on November 28 for most of our region. This is for winds that could gust to 45 mph (or higher). That can take down some tree branches or power lines. It may also move holiday decorations across the neighborhood.

A strong storm in Maine will be cranking in mid-winter fashion. While it blows fresh snow on the New England ski resorts and Lake Effect will pound central New York, we just get the cold winds.  The tight pressure gradient will result in increasing winds throughout the day.


Wind Timeline

There may be two impulses of wind. The top winds should be in the morning to mid day. But due to the dynamics of the storm, we could get a second surge of strong winds in the evening after the advisory expires. It will remain cold all day.  So that despite the temperatures, it will feel like the 20s.  Here are two views of the winds during the day. 1) Gusts; and 2) Wind Speed every other hour.

This model projection is still limited. There will be areas across a broader region that could gust higher than shown

Wind Speed —> slider

Most of the day, wind speeds measured as a 1 minute average will range between 15 and 30 mph. The gusts will be the surges that push 45 mph.

Looking Ahead

After the winds settle back, we will have a dry Thursday and most of Friday. Showers will return Friday afternoon/evening. Rain is likely on Saturday afternoon and night, ending Sunday morning.
