Windy weekend on top of some showers


(WOWK) — The weekend of May 8-9 should feature some stout breezes even before dealing with any showers. A fairly strong area of low pressure is anticipated to move into the region Sunday, acting as a player to drive strong winds across the region.

Saturday should feature wind gusts mainly around 20 mph. That’s similar to the winds on Friday in the area. However, Sunday should feature some stronger winds, possibly topping 30 mph.

If winds do top 30 mph we could see loose yard objects get tossed around and also drivers should leave space around high profile vehicles that can be swayed by the wind like large trucks.

We will watch the models closely and make adjustments as needed to the StormTracker 13 forecast but a great way to see if any high wind advisories are in effect is to get the StormTracker 13 weather app for free right here.
