POTTER COUNTY, Pa. — A fast-moving area of low pressure cut just to our north and strengthened over New England. During that strengthening process Friday afternoon, winds picked up quickly up across the Northeast. Peak gusts ranged from 40 to 50 mph in eastern parts of Western New York.
A Wind Advisory remained in effect for Potter County in northern Pennsylvania until 11 p.m. Sustained winds of 20 to 25 mph with gusts to 50 mph were possible during that time. Winds may be strong enough to cause some isolated power outages.
Winds have weakened enough in other areas for other advisories to expire ahead of schedule.
Overnight, winds will weaken but scattered rain and snow showers may make for some slick spots on roads and sidewalks. Temperatures will drop just below freezing anywhere inland from the lakes so plan on some possible icy spots first thing Saturday morning.
