GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) - A low pressure system will swing over the state on Saturday, bringing scattered strong storms and higher humidity. The day will be a First Alert Weather Day because of the storm threat and the impact it will have on events happening all over the area. Showers may be active in the morning with the storms firing up around lunchtime. We should be tracking a few storms on First Alert Radar into the evening. A storm may impact the Super Regional baseball games at Clark-LeClair Stadium in Greenville. It is a noon start time as of now.

Severe thunderstorms will be possible, but once the first round of rain moves through, the threat of severe weather will come down. If severe storms do develop, damaging straight line winds around and under the storms will be the main threat. Wind gusts could reach as high as 50-60 mph. Rainfall totals will likely range between 0.5″ to 1.0″. Not all areas will have a storm, but those that do, will see a hefty downpour.
