High-Speed Winds, Flood Watch Sunday in NYC Area

By Hamodia Staff

The National Weather Service issued a Flood Watch Saturday in effect citywide from 4 p.m. Sunday to 6 a.m. Monday for 2 to 3 inches of rain. A High Wind Watch is also in effect for Brooklyn and Queens from 4 p.m. Sunday to 6 a.m. Monday for sustained winds of 30 to 40 mph and gusts up to 60 mph.

After the announcement, the New York City Emergency Management Department issued a travel advisory for the two days.

While major flooding is not expected, heavy rain may lead to flood conditions, particularly in low-lying and poorly drained areas. Isolated instances of flash flooding cannot be ruled out, resulting in the potential for traffic disruption and delays.

Winds will be breezy during the day Sunday and ramp up in the evening through early Monday morning.

Downed trees and power lines could produce widespread power outages, particularly along the coast.
