First Alert Weather Day: Tracking High Winds and a Few Storms Saturday
Wind gusts are expected to range between 40 to 50 mph inland to the coast, regardless of storms
GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) - Whether we see storms or not, it will be a very windy day across ENC! Saturday morning gusts will start to approach 40 mph by 8-9 AM. For the rest of the day, gusts will stay between 40-50 mph. Any storms that get going from noon to 7 PM could easily cause gusts over 60 mph. Power outages will be possible.
Saturday morning storms will still be on the other side of the state. They’ll start to approach and cross I-95 around noon. Storms won’t necessarily be severe as they arrive. There’s a better chance of thunder/lightning than anything severe. If we see sunshine through the day instead of the expected clouds, that could add to the instability and raise the severe threat. We’ll keep watching it for you. All you have to do is stay weather aware and download the WITN Weather App or follow us on social media.
