What does this mean?
It’s the aviation forecast* for Westchester County Airport, north of White Plains, NY, forecasting winds of 25 knots (about 30 miles per hour) with gusts to 40 knots (about 45 mph) between 1000 and 1100 GMT (5 to 6am) with moderate rain showers.
This will be much worse in upstate NY (Rochester is predicting winds to 30 to 50 mph from midnight through noon Monday!).
After skies clear around NYC on Monday, winds around midday will be 16knots gusting to 24 kt, so hold on to your hats!

*Called a TAF or Terminal Area Forecast.
