Get Ready: High Wind Watch Issued for North Haven

The National Weather Service warns winds could gust up to 60 miles per hour in North Haven, as well as throughout much of the area Wednesday night into early Thursday morning.

For Wednesday evening through late Wednesday night, the National Weather Service has issued a high wind warning for North Haven, as well as much of the rest of the shoreline.

The NWS reports winds are expected to be sustained from 25 to 35 miles per house — with frequent gusts of up to 60 mph or more.

"Strong winds, in combination with heavy rain, could bring down whole trees, large tree limbs, power lines and unsecured objects," the meteorologists warn in their report.

They added that the high wind conditions "could pose a hazard to anyone out driving or walking," as well as homes and other structures near large trees.

Driving is also expected to be difficult during the wind storm, especially in high profile vehicles, and on elevated roadways and bridges.

Showers and thunderstorms also possible overnight from Wednesday into Thursday morning, with some storms possibly producing heavy rainfall.

North Haven Patch will provide updates on any possible power outages that may occur in relation to the expected high winds.
