Batten down the hatches, the wind is coming!  Winds may gust to 50 mph Thursday in parts of Western New York. This has caused the National Weather Service to issue a wind advisory for several counties. Those counties include Niagara, Orleans, Genesee and northern Erie.

The advisory is in effect from 11am to 11pm, and the wind comes ahead of a cold front that may produce thunderstorms with damaging winds late Thursday evening.  So one day after you got to use your patio furniture, you may have to put it away for another day.
