Just five days removed from Buffalo's strongest wind gust since last April, the Buffalo Niagara International Airport topped last Friday's 57 mph gust with one that was 59 mph Wednesday morning, according to National Weather Service reports.
An automated station at the airport recorded the 59 mph gust at 4:39 a.m. It was the strongest gust logged thus far today across the Buffalo Niagara region.
Here are the other reports from across the region today:
Today's 59 mph gust was Buffalo's strongest gust since a 63 mph wind last April 4.
The winds were strong enough to force a plane into a jet bridge at the Buffalo airport earlier today, according to reports.
Winds are forecast to continue through Wednesday and into the overnight hours.
A wind advisory is posted through 10 p.m. across Western New York.
