A cold front making its way through the area Friday afternoon is expected to bring with it winds between 20 and 30 miles per hour with gusts as high as 45, the advisory said. The winds are expected to die down by midnight, but could still potentially down tree limbs and power lines in the interim.
Coupled with the winds will be a potential flood risk, the NWS said. The advisory said that excessive runoff from this storm may cause flooding in densely populated areas, highways, streets and underpasses. It also warned that smaller rivers and streams may rise and possibly overflow their banks.
As a precaution, the NWS advised that residents do not drive into areas covered with water.
According to the NWS, Harrison should see rain and wind throughout the day, eventually clearing up by the end of the day with a high near 55 degrees. Winds will continue through the night, givng way to a mostly sunny and dry Saturday and Sunday with a high near 46 degrees and minimal winds.
