Strong Winds & Flooding

A strong cold front swept across east central New York and adjacent western New England Wednesday bringing strong and gusty winds and heavy rains to the area. With the passage of the cold front winds quickly shifted from the south-southeast to the west and temperatures rapidly dropped from the 50s into the 30s. Rain mixed with and changed to sleet across the Mohawk Valley in the wake of the cold front. Ahead of the cold front a very strong south to southeast low level jet resulted in wind gusts up to 55 mph and with the passage of the front there were wind gusts up to to around 50 mph. These strong winds gusts downed trees and power lines resulting in power outages. Generally, 1 to 3 inches of rain fell across the area with higher amounts of 5 to 7 inches across the higher terrain of the eastern Catskills. River flooding occurred in the eastern Catskills, southern Adirondacks and Mohawk Valley. In addition, urban and small stream flooding also occurred across the local area.
