11:18 pm
warmer air over way next couple of hours. also dew point temperatures in the upper 50s to around 60 degrees. thought about doing a frizz factor for morning commute we've got serious weather to talk about. so i'll opt out of that. but here wind gusts right now 25 it 35, 45 mile per hour wind gusts. as air warms up new hampshire and merrimac valley your winds will start to ramp up. that's concern overnight tonight. we have wind sad advise other in effect monitoring showers and thunderstorms. a line of strong thunderstorms now marching through the hudson river valley even some thunderstorms out ahead of that main line. so as the thunderstorms march across new england overnight tonight. what they will be able to do is grab some stronger wind from the clouds and yank that down to the ground. so that's why we do think there will be winds gusting 40 perhaps as high 50 miles per hour overnight tonight not to say everyone will have that concern is there. i think the timing that would be some time between 2:00 a.m. and 5:00 a.m. tomorrow morning. and it will be quite rainy for a
