Hold on to your pussy willows. Dyngus Day's going to be a windy one.
Wind gusts will reach up to 55 mph on Monday around Western New York. The National Weather Service forecasts steady winds of up to 35 mph throughout the day as the region sits under a wind advisory.
The advisory is already in effect for southern Erie and Chautauqua counties, and will go into effect at 8 a.m. for the rest of Western New York.
The advisory is scheduled to expire at 5 p.m. for all counties except Niagara and Orleans. There, it runs until 5 a.m. Tuesday, according to the weather service.
Along with the high winds, there's a lakeshore flood advisory in place from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. for Erie and Chautauqua counties.
The rain will be around much of the day, though there will be a break for a few hours starting later this morning.
Temperatures, which will start the day in the 50s, will drop through the 40s as the day goes on. Tonight's overnight lows will dip to about the freezing mark.
