New York Weather: Powerful Storm Expected To Pack 60-70 MPH Winds

We're expecting rounds of moderate to heavy rain through the day with iso'd strong to severe storms this afternoon. These storms will have the potential to produce heavy downpours, damaging winds and even an isolated tornado; the greatest risk will be west of the city. A high wind warning has been issued for much of the area, including the city; these winds will peak midday and into the afternoon with gusts ranging from 60-70 mph. The main concerns with the winds will be downed trees/branches and downed power lines; high profile vehicles are also of concern.
