Good Morning Everyone,

  • Frequent winds gust between 20 and 25 mph are possible Saturday. Gusts between 25 and 35 mph are possible on Sunday.
  • Areas east of Bath and Blounts Creek are forecasted to experience the highest of these sustained and wind gust ranges.

  • 2 to 3 inches of rain is possible for areas east of Bath and Blounts Creek, with 1 ˝ to 2 inches of rain expected for areas west between Saturday morning and sunset Sunday.
