Thunderstorm, High Winds in Store for South Fork

Powerful gusts of wind and up to three-quarters of an inch of rain expected.

There is a 100 percent chance of rain on the South Fork Wednesday night, with winds gusts of up to 60 miles per hour, posing a hazard to pedestrians and motorists and potentially causing property damage.

The National Weather Service has issued a high wind warning, taking effect Wednesday at 6 p.m. and lasting overnight. Showers are expected by 5 p.m., with a thunderstorm beginning after midnight.

The warning states that south winds of 25 to 35 miles per hour, with gusts reaching up to 60 miles per hour, could bring down large tree limbs, whole trees and power lines, as well as unsecured items outdoors.

Rainfall accumulation is expected to be between half and three-quarters of an inch.

The temperature is expected to remain above the freezing point, sparing drivers from black ice, but heavy rain will still prove hazardous and motorists should exercise extra caution.

Yes, highhat wants them to live it up in luxury at tax-payor expense. "Spare no expense" was his comment.

to Jaguar-Guy: [Sigh.] Another lie. What I DID say is that a plan was to take effect several years ago that would have dispersed the sex offenders by subsidizing their housing at up to $60K/yr. (which, I now recall, was the projected cost of "temporary" hotel accommodations.); that it would actually have worked; and that it was shelved because people were outraged at the cost. In contrast, folks like you prefer to fulminate about the problem without attempting to provide a pragmatic, real-life solution, preferring to spin fantasies about killing the residents in a biblically approved fashion.
