Gusty winds could blow around unsecured objects. Tree limbs could be blown down and a few power outages may result.

Southeast winds will increase this evening. Extremely saturated soils due to previous rainfall events may result in trees and power poles being more more susceptible to wind. There will be a lull in the winds early Saturday morning before shifting to the west and increasing again with gusts near 40 to 50 mph.

Use extra caution when driving, especially if operating a high profile vehicle. Secure outdoor objects.
