The rain will start tapering off late Tuesday, but the winds will begin ramping up.  A HIGH WIND WATCH will take effect late Tuesday night and continue through Wednesday evening.  Wind gusts of 50 to 65 mph are possible.  That’s plenty strong enough to down trees and cause wide-spread power outages.
