NEW YORK - A wind advisory was in effect for New Yorkers Monday as wind gusts reached as high as between 40 and 50 mph.

The gusty winds transported a few flurries into the city as well.

The high temperature on Monday was 42 degrees, and temperatures were below 40 degrees at 10:30 p.m.

Fierce winds on the Upper West Side knocked down a tree, which crushed a van parked near the intersection of 87th Street and Columbus Avenue.

No one was in the car when it happened.

While New Yorkers dealt with temperatures getting colder, many upstate dealt with their first storm of the season.

Snow began falling in parts of the Hudson Valley Sunday morning, as well as parts of western and central New York, and continued into Monday night.
