WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. - Thought it was dreary across Westchester County on Sunday with gray skies and drizzle? It will get even worse overnight as a quick-moving cold front blows through the region overnight with thunderstorms and gusting winds, the National Weather Service said.
Showers are possible Sunday evening with areas of fog. Strong winds will develop after midnight with gusts of 30 to 40 miles per hour, with the most powerful gusts just ahead of the cold front and rain. Some thunderstorms may be severe with damaging winds.
Overnight lows will be in the mid 50s. Winds of 10 to 15 mph with gusts of up to 25 mph will increase to 40 mph gusts after midnight.
Rain will continue to fall Monday with a chance of thunderstorms in the morning and heavy winds continuing. But it will be sunny in the afternoon.
The cold front is moving across the eastern United States, causing tornadoes and heavy thunderstorms in Illinois and Indiana earlier Sunday. It will move through the Hudson Valley between 3 and 5 a.m. Monday.
Gusty winds capable of causing damage to trees and power lines will continue from the overnight into most of the day on Monday.
A dense fog advisory is in effect for all the waters of Long Island Sound until 6 a.m. Monday and a small craft advisory is in effect until late Monday.
