It said southwest winds 15 to 30 miles per hour with gusts up to 55 mph and possibly up to 60 mph will develop Friday morning ahead of a storm system tracking to the northwest of the tri-state area on Friday.

Winds will shift to the west to northwest behind its trailing cold front late Friday with gusts up to 55 mph and possibly up to 60 mph into the early evening hours, the Weather Service said.

It said the strongest wind gusts are most likely just ahead of the front Friday afternoon and in its immediate wake late Friday afternoon and early Friday evening. These strong gusty winds likely will bring down trees and power lines, the Weather Service said.
