A storm system will bring rain and powerful winds to the tri-state into Sunday, Storm Team 4 says.
The first showers arrived Saturday afternoon and continued into the evening. The heaviest rain is expected overnight, with steady rain in the forecast until Sunday morning.
But Storm Team 4 warns the gusty winds are the most dangerous part of the system. Sustained winds of 25 to 35 mph with gusts over 40 mph are expected in and around the city, while gusts could top 50 mph on Long Island, Storm Team 4 says.
The National Weather Service issued a wind advisory for New York City from 10 p.m. Saturday until 6 p.m. Sunday. It issued a high wind warning for Suffolk County until Sunday evening.
The strong winds could blow down limbs, trees and power lines. Scattered power outages are also possible.
After the winds subside Sunday evening, temperatures are expected to drop overnight, with highs lingering in the 40s for a blustery Monday.
