Wind could pose greater threat than rain

Oct 28, 2012 12:16 pm
Eric Houghtaling reports in today's Daily Freeman the National Weather Service has advised wind from the approaching storm is a greater threat to the Hudson Valley and Catskills than rain. Hurricane Sandy is expected to move north in the Atlantic Ocean, then turn west before coming ashore in southern New Jersey sometime Monday, according to the NSW in Albany. From there, the storm is forecast to move inland, turn north and make its way through central Pennsylvania and central New York, Houghtaling writes. There is currently a flood watch and a high wind watch in effect for the region. Watches mean conditions are possible; warnings mean they are imminent. Wind gusts Monday, could exceed 60 mph in the valley and 70 mph in the mountains. One to two inches of rain are expected in valley locations, and two to four inches are forecast for the mountains. But some pockets of the Catskills could get as much as five to six inches of rain. The storm is expected to slow down as it moves inland. Read the full story in the Daily Freeman.
