This is my first posting to the Weather on the Ones blog, and I get to talk about a lot!
First of all, if you have any decorations outside of your home, you may want to anchor them down this evening or first thing saturday, as Sunday looks to be a rather windy day!
Lets start with friday evening. we have a storm system which is coming together over the southern Plains states which will move easteward tonight into saturday.
we'll see clouds building in ahead of this storm on saturday morning, and don't be suprised to see light rain here and there by early saturday afternoon.
Saturday night into Sunday morning are our better chances for some measureable rain. we could see about an inch to some localized areas getting an inch and a half to 2 inches from this system once its all said and done. Rain clears out from west to east sunday, so if you have morning plans in pittsboro, you may be able to leave your umbrella on the car by lunchtime, but if you live downeast of I-95, it may take until the afternoon before the rain ceases.
After the rain, however, comes the wind!
This storm system will rapidly increase in strength as it makes a beeline to the New York and the northeast and in its wake we'll feel it with winds that could be in the 20 mph range and gusts of 35-40 mph! That inflatable snowglobe in the front yard might be taking a trip down your street if you don't watch out.
Whats the encore after that kind of weather? a calmer work week, but a cooler one as well.
