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

As a cold snap settles over the Hudson Valley, the National Weather Service issued a wind advisory, warning of 22 mile per hour winds and gusts as high as 45 miles per hour through midnight 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.
