Winds could gust to up to 50 to 60 miles an hour on Sunday in Orleans County, the National Weather Service in Buffalo said.

A high wind watch is in effect for Orleans, Niagara, Genesee and Erie counties from Sunday morning through the evening.

There will be southwest winds from 25 to 35 miles per hour with the stronger gusts.

“Strong to damaging winds possible,” the Weather Service said. “Shallow rooted trees may be downed more easily with the recently thawed and saturated soil conditions. Travel may become hazardous for high profile vehicles.”
