Port Chester: Windy, Wintry Storm Coming Wednesday

Westchester is under a wind advisory and weather watch for Wednesday, November 7.

With around 900 Con Ed customers still without power in Port Chester and still reeling from last Monday's hurricane, unfortunately, some more nasty weather is on the way.

The National Weather Service has issued a high wind watch for Wednesday morning through late Wednesday night and a coastal flood watch for Wednesday afternoon through Thursday morning.

In Port Chester, residents should prepare for a chance of snow and/or rain before 10:00 a.m. Wednesday, with a high of 42 degrees, according to the NWS. Wind gusts could reach 55 mph but there will be "little to no snow accumulation," the NWS states.

Wednesday night, temps will drop to 34 degrees in Port Chester, with a chance of rain before 9:00 p.m., then snow and rain, according to the NWS. Wind gusts could reach 60 mph.

On Thursday, there will be snow and rain, turning to all rain after 9:00 a.m., according to the NWS. The high will reach 43 degrees in Port Chester.

The National Weather Service's Hazardous Weather Outlook states that "winds of this magnitude will be capable of producing downed trees and power lines as well as property damage."

For residents without power, plan ahead to get to a warm, safe location to sleep and warm up Wednesday and Thursday. There is an emergency shelter set up, offering folks a place to sleep and warm up. Head to the Albert Leonard Middle School, 25 Gerard Lane, in New Rochelle. There are cots for sleeping. Contact the American Red Cross for more information at 914-682-2299.

Additional shelters are open in White Plains and Tarrytown.
