Wet and Windy
Midday update: Heavy rain threat is over, although still some drizzle and light showers possible through the afternoon. Rainfall totals from Zeta range from 1″ to 3″ over the last 2 days.
Given the track of Zeta, more significant flooding has occurred in western areas of N.C., where active Flash Flood Warnings remain active.
Although the main wind threat will remain east of the Tri-Cities, we can still expect with gusts near 40 mph in the Tri-Cities through the afternoon. A High Wind Warning is set to expire at noon.
A cold front moves through tonight and will deliver a fresh dose of late October-like change. A breezy NW wind along with temperatures in the 40’s for the higher elevations and low to mid 50’s in the Tri-Cities means a chilly end to the work week.
A bright and beautiful Saturday along with crisp conditions means a perfect last weekend of October. Another clipper system will dive through the region late Sunday into Monday, delivering an even colder set-up for early November.
