High winds forecast for region

By Bert Gambini

Buffalo, NY – The National Service has posted a high wind watch for most of Saturday.

The weather will start to get dicey Friday evening, with a near certain chance of rain with thunderstorms that could produce some gusty winds. More rain is likely Saturday, with falling afternoon temperatures. Twenty to 30 mph winds will increase between 35 and 50 mph with gusts possible up to 60 mph.

Winds nearly as strong will continue Saturday night along with the possibility of a rain-snow mix. Things should settle down by Sunday morning.
