A strong “jet streak” of fierce winds will set up a favorable environment for thunderstorms to produce damaging wind gusts as high as 47 mph. “Jet streaks” are localized regions of very fast winds embedded within the jet stream.
The National Weather Service has issued a Wind Advisory in effect from noon today to midnight EDT tonight in northeastern New Jersey and the lower Hudson Valley.
Watch out for downed power lines, large branches and trees. Scattered power outages are possible. Winds this strong can make driving difficult.
