A high wind warning issued for all of New York City as well as Long Island and Connecticut as gusts wreak havoc across the tri-state area has expired.
The winds on Monday have knocked down the canopy of a gas station in Queens,felled a tree in Westchester that derailed the car of a Metro-North train, and caused dangers at construction sites and tall buildings and prompted power outages. The weather service is predicting winds that could pack the same punch as a tropical storm, with gusts of up to 60 mph and steady winds of between 25 and 35 mph.
Once the winds end, the next concern is a potential storm on Thursday. The weekend may offer yet another storm prospect, but warmer air may keep it all rain.
