High wind warnings issued

ALBANY (AP) -- The National Weather Service says wind gusts could top 60 mph in parts of upstate New York as a cold front drives temperatures down from record winter highs and brings expected heavy rain in eastern areas and lake-effect snow to western parts of the state.

The weather service has issued a high wind warning for much of eastern New York from Wednesday night through this evening, with flood watches in effect from the Adirondacks south to the Hudson Valley and Catskills.
