CHARLESTON, W.Va., (WOWK) – Heavy rains and strong wind gusts await the area across Saturday and Sunday (October 26-27, 2019) according to the StormTracker 13 meteorologists.
A large system will move in from the south with sprinkles for some area football games Friday night, mainly along and south of I-64.
Showers are expected to lift south to north with a good chance of rain for most of us from early Saturday through mid afternoon. A break in the rain is anticipated for many areas, especially our West Virginia counties. Heavier rains will move across the area west to east after 11 p.m. along with the strongest wind gusts that this system should provide.
The StormTracker 13 meteorologists say any wind gusts above 30 miles per hour could possibly take down some tree limbs so there could be a few issues with that in terms of falling limbs or even a few spotty power outages.
Rainfall estimates are anywhere from a quarter inch of rain to more than an inch. Some pockets where drainage is poor could see brief issues with high water.
