High Winds Whip through NYC

March, a month where the seasons transition from winter to spring, can produce some fickle weather. But, it is probably most famous for strong winds, and they were on full display in New York City yesterday.

According to the NWS, sustained winds of 25mph were measured in Central Park and gusts reached as high as 45mph. A wind advisory was issued in the afternoon and remains in effect until later this evening.

Below is a short video of strong winds whipping a tree in a NYC backyard.  Even though it is largely protected by buildings, it still moves quite a bit.
