It's going to be a cold and windy Sunday.

Temperatures are expected to drop, peaking at about 29 degrees on Sunday and a bone-chilling 15 degrees overnight, according to forecasts.

The wind advisory covers most of southern Westchester County; counties to the north, including Dutchess and Ulster, will see blustery winds and even colder temperatures, with Sunday's forecast calling for highs in the mid-20s.

Monday will bring much of the same, with temperatures peaking at the freezing mark and slightly less forceful winds, the weather service said.
