Post Tropical Cyclone Sandy will continue to move inland through the Mid-Atlantic States today and weaken with gusty winds and occasional showers lingering across the region, especially over the higher terrain. The remnants of Sandy will lift up through western New York on Wednesday with some showers and breezy conditions lingering over the region into mid-week.
A Wind Advisory is in effect for the entire region through 6 p.m. this evening. Wind speeds will be sustained from the southeast at 20 to 30 mph, with occasional gusts up to 50 mph in the valleys and 55 mph across the higher terrain. Strong winds may bring down additional trees and power lines with scattered power outages still possible. Any loose objects will also be easily propelled into the air becoming dangerous flying projectiles.
