Damaging wind gusts, power outages likely early Monday with coastal storm

Big East Coast storm targets New York region, with heavy rain, strong winds on Sunday Damaging wind gusts, power outages likely early Monday with coastal storm

Showers may linger into Monday. The strongest part of the storm will occur Sunday evening into the overnight. "Gusts could go as high as 40 MPH Monday", Cameron said.

"Late Monday, rain will slowly come to and end with totals ranging from 1-4".

Rain will begin during the early night Sunday as well as the breezier winds with both picking up in intensity after midnight.

We issued a First Alert Sunday into Monday ahead of the significant storm. "Showers in the morning will give way to partial clearing by mid-afternoon".

Below is the RPM computer model's forecast for wind gusts during the height of the storm (Sun10pm to Monday 4am). Areas most prone to damage are locations along the shoreline and on high hilltops inland. Wind this strong can make driving hard, especially for high profile vehicles. Strong wind gusts may blow down limbs, trees and power lines, it said, and scattered power outages are expected. Gusts to 50 miles per hour are possible.

More than 21 million people in parts of New York, New Jersey, and nearby states are under the watch.

Power outages are a real concern, especially considering leaves are still on the trees.

"Flash flooding in urban and poor-drainage areas, including streets and in homes and businesses, is possible", according to MEMA. The flash flood warning is in effect from noon on Sunday through the evening. This low will pull a cold front through the region during the mid day hours on Monday creating a shift in winds as colder and drier air move in along gusty winds. Widespread rainfall amounts of 2 to 4 inches are expected, with localized higher amounts.

About four to six inches for some areas in Jefferson County and central NY is possible by Tuesday evening.
