Winds Stick Around After Storms Rip Through Tri-State

NBCUniversal Media, LLC

Storms producing strong wind gusts up to 60 mph that hit the tri-state Sunday evening have moved out but some of the winds are going to stick around.

A wind advisory remains in place for most of the area through Monday and temperatures drop noticeably. The first day of the workweek looks to stay relatively dry and cool but gusts between 30 and 40 mph will continue through most of the day before calming around dinner time.

Rain is expected to return Wednesday but it's not expected to be significant.

A cooldown is also in store for the end of the week with a near 20 degree-drop in temperatures between Wednesday and Friday.

Sunday's storms hit the region shortly after dusk and continued for several hours.

Heavy rains and strong winds that at times gusted up to 70 mph were blamed for a roof collapse at a motel in Neptune, New Jersey, and officials were working to determine if a tornado passed through the area.

Falling trees also damaged numerous homes across the state and brought down power lines, causing roughly 30,000 customers to lose power Sunday night. However, most had service restored by early Monday.
