More details from the NWS for today's winds and when the cold front will be coming though.
Have a great day and stay safe everyone.

It will be very windy today, but the strongest winds will follow a cold front which will cross 3 - 8 p.m. today. Wind gusts of 50 to 65 mph behind the front. This will also cause water levels to rise on Lake Erie resulting in flooding along the shoreline.

including the following counties...Genesee...Monroe...Niagara
