First Alert Weather Day: Heavy Rain, Gusty Winds Sunday Morning
Waves of heavy rain and isolated storms will bring a risk of flooding Saturday night and Sunday
GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) - The soaking rain that is expected tonight will bring the risk of isolated flooding for areas east of I-95. With the expected heavy rains, gusty winds and associated flood risk, tonight through the first half of Sunday will be a First Alert Weather Day across all of Eastern NC.
Most, if not all, of our one to three inches of rain is expected to fall throughout-Sunday time period. With our soil already saturated, watch for standing water in areas with poor drainage. Roadways could have ponding Sunday morning too. Areas that tend to struggle with flooding during heavy rain events could see a flash flooding threat.
Wind gusts up to 40 mph are possible Saturday night into Sunday as the storm system moves through. An isolated severe storm or two is possible.
