Wind Advisory in effect Saturday night into Sunday

BREAKING: A WIND ADVISORY has been issued for tomorrow night into Sunday for Allegany and adjoining counties, except to the east where light accumulating ice is the primary possible hazard Saturday morning.

Counties from Livingston south to Potter, Pa., can expect winds from 30-to-40MPH, with gusts to 50, and Wyoming County northwest potentially reaching 55MPH, according to National Weather Service forecasts. The Advisory is in effect from 6PM Saturday through 5AM Sunday.

For Steuben County east, accumulating ice of up to a tenth of an inch, particularly at higher elevations, is expected to make roads and other surfaces slick. Wind gusts are expected to reach the mid-40MPH levels.

Winds will start out from the southeast tomorrow before shifting to the southwest in the afternoon.

Rain will accompany the winds before ending Sunday, with a sunny day and brisk winds forecast.
