Storm arrives

Small craft advisory was in effect this afternoon as a big storm system moves through and a gale warning kicks in tonight as winds build. By 5pm, winds were gusting up to 20 MPH out of the northeast. Traffic was moderate ahead of the storm and a couple of tugs have sought the sheltered anchorages off Yonkers. Something brought police boats to the Bridge in the morning, followed by the big Three Forty Three fireboat and it is not very pleasant to speculate about what that might be.
