So what does that mean? Well, those winds could cause plenty of damage around Western New York. Those winds can easily send your garbage tote or lawn decorations down the street.

With the heavy gusts, trees could come crashing down as well. Many older trees might be more susceptible to crashing down since there has been so much groundwater lately. The ground could be loosened up, and when the winds hit the tree, the roots could move easier in the wet soggy ground.

The best thing to do is make sure your decorations are firmly in place or take them down for the weekend. Make sure any outdoor furniture or garbage totes are secured properly. You should also check on any trees that could be pushed over during the high winds. Securing them or making sure there is nothing around them in case they fall would be ideal.

Along with the wind will be rain as well. Heavy rain showers are expected across Western New York throughout the day on Saturday.
