There's a wind advisory in effect for the New York City area starting at noon Monday until 6 a.m. Tuesday. The National Weather Service said wind gusts could get as high as 45 miles per hour.

LaGuardia airport is reporting delays of up to an hour and Newark is facing 35 minute delays.

In preparation for the windy weather, city officials reminded builders, contractors and property owners to secure construction sites. That includes securing loose debris, protecting electrical equipment from the weather and suspending crane operations.

The Department of Buildings said it will perform random spot-check inspections.

The temperature has soared to an unseasonable 58 degrees, although the historical record for Valentine’s Day in New York City is 63 degrees Fahrenheit in 1946.
