Multiple-choice forecasting

As of 11:45 a.m. Saturday, here’s the National Weather Service’s Sunday forecast for the Kingston area:

“Overcast with showers. Becoming windy in the afternoon. High around 45. SE winds 10 to 15 mph, increasing to 20 to 30 mph. Chance of rain 90%.”

And here are the two main sentences in the “High Wind Watch” for the Kingston area on Sunday, also courtesy of the National Weather Service and posted on the same Web page at the same time as the above information:

“Sustained winds of 20 to 40 mph will be likely, with gusts around 60 mph. Some mountainous locations could experience wind gusts of 65 to 85 mph.”

For heaven's sake, WHICH IS IT?!
