50+mph Wind Gust Headed Into WNC Tonight, Power Outages Flash Flooding Concerns Loom

A strong line of storms is headed for WNC and will move through your location in the next few hours. These strong gust could top 50mph in some locations, and that could cause power outages. Please be mindful of this if you are out traveling late this evening or tomorrow as this front passes through. Below you can see the most recent radar and there are some vectors showing up on the velocity scan of 70mph. These gusts are likely not making it to the surface, but winds over 45mph cannot be ruled out.

More Wind Likely Sunday

As the front pushes through, more gusty wind is likely on Sunday. With the soil so wet and the water table so high, I am somewhat concerned about power outages around the area. Also trees falling across roadways can be very dangerous, so please be mindful of that when traveling around the area over the next 36 hours. Please report any downed tree you see around the area to the AshevilleWX Weather Community on Facebook, and check back later for more updates!
