Yes, you read this correctly. Tropical Storm Olga, that formed in the Gulf
of Mexico, has traveled all the way up the center of the United States to the
Northeast. It is now considered a remnant low without a name, but it is still
the same storm system that brought flooding to Louisiana and the Mississippi
Valley. Now, this low pressure system is affecting our weather this Sunday,
October 27th.

What you can expect throughout Sunday in Central New York is heavy rainfall and
strong winds. Specifically, wind speeds around 15-20 mph with gusts up to 30
mph. The heaviest rainfall and strongest winds will be in the morning and
afternoon. The rain will become light in the evening, but won't let up until
Sunday night. This means that we will accumulate a decent amount of water on the
ground. Around 1 to 2 inches of rainfall is expected.

Hazards to watch out for; low visibility in areas of heavy rainfall, ponding
water on the roads with localized flooding possible, and difficulty steering
with strong winds. Overall, be cautious driving today and bring any lose objects
inside.
