UPDATE: High winds, lakeshore flooding biggest risks for Monday (full-coverage)

The rain will move out during the morning hours on Monday, but the winds will continue to whip behind the storm that brought inches of rain to the Finger Lakes on Sunday and early-Monday.

While localized issues were reported throughout the region — many of the concerns were not realized due to abnormally dry conditions that were present prior to its arrival.

That said, High Wind Warnings and Lakeshore Flood Warnings remain active through most of the day — if not into Tuesday morning.

The Lakeshore Flood Warning for those counties bordering Lake Ontario remains active until 5 am on Tuesday. The National Weather Service says strong northwest winds will be developing and becoming westerly.

This combination will create wave action along the shoreline that will cause increased erosion and possibly produce minor flooding, according to the National Weather Service.

This is most-concerning for those who saw significant flooding, or damage earlier in the year from a prolonged lakeshore flooding event due to higher-than-normal levels of Lake Ontario.

The High Wind Warning remains active until 5 pm on Monday. The National Weather Service says Monroe, Wayne, Northern Cayuga, Oswego, and Onondaga counties could see winds in excess of 65 mph.

They will be sustained out o the west at 30-40 mph, which could result in downed trees, power outages, and minor property damage.

A Wind Advisory remains active for the rest of our viewing area.

    Last time this happened my skirt came up over my head and I fell down on Main Street. I’m a 85 year old lady that has problems with excessive hair growth. When my skirt came up cause of the wind it made me fall on the sidewalk and no one would help me get up because of all the hair. I hope I don’t fall Sunday walking to church.
