Rain, Wind, Flooding, Hail, Cold TempsOctober 15th, 2011 at 5:58 pm by Bryan Shaw under 4 Warn Weather
That sums up what was saw pretty nicely today.
We still have the high wind warning until 7 AM Sunday. Wind gusts as high as 55 mph overnight. We received lots of viewer photos today of Rt. 5 and the lakeshore getting hit very hard. There is also the lakeshore flood advisory until 9 PM.
This morning we saw some heavy rain and storms. The upper air is pretty darn cold. Cold enough to support some graupel/ice pellets this morning in the eastern suburbs. Also there were reports of hail. It accumulated a bit even with surface temperatures at 48 degrees.
Just be careful today with the wind. High profile vehicles are most affected. Conditions should start to improve by tomorrow with slightly warmer temperatures.
