A High Wind Watch has been posted for tomorrow.
Sustained winds of 30 to 40 miles per hour are forecast for Genesee County and all of Western New York. Expect gusts up to 60 miles per hour.
The National Weather service says a sharp cold front will begin to cross the area tomorrow morning setting up the high winds.
The windy weather is due to diminish by tomorrow night.
Joseph Bruno, who served for more than a decade as the Republican Majority Leader of the New York State Senate, was sentenced to two years in prison. But he will remain free on bail until the U.S. Supreme Court reviews the statute under which he was convicted. Bruno was convicted last December of concealing the fact that he received hundreds-of-thousands-of-dollars from a businessman who wanted help from the state legislature.
If the Supreme Court rules the law involved is overly broad and vague, it's possible that Bruno may not serve prison time at all.
The first major inconsistency in the murder trial of Scott Doll surfaced during testimony late yesterday.
A Genesee County Sheriff’s Deputy recalled that on the night Doll was taken into custody at the home of Joseph Benaquist, Doll claimed the blood he was covered in was from butchering a deer.
Even Doll’s own lawyer now concedes the blood was that of murder victim Joe Benaquist.
Earlier yesterday, Doll’s attorney Paul Cambria startled the courtroom when he suggested that Scott Doll’s son, Joshua, might have killed Benaquist.
Only a half-day of testimony is scheduled for today.
President Obama is coming to Buffalo.
The President is scheduled to be in town next Thursday as part of his White House to Main Street tour.

The Buffalo visit could include a town hall style meeting and possibly other stops.
It's the first time a sitting President has visited Buffalo since 2004.
A man who infected 13 young women with HIV is one step closer to being held under the state's civil confinement law. A judge has ruled there is enough probable cause to proceed to a civil hearing on whether to keep Nushawn Williams out of society. That hearing is now set for October 12th. Williams could be held indefinitely under the confinement law if deemed to be a risk to the community. He has just finished a 12-year prison term for spreading the virus in Jamestown and Chautauqua County in the 1990's and remains behind bars while the proceedings continue.
