CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - The 19 First Alert Weather Team has issued a 19 First Alert Weather Day for Saturday.

We issue Alert Days when we know that the weather will have a big impact on your day.

Widespread rain will move into our area late Friday night and will continue into Saturday morning.

By 1:00 p.m., the weather will be dry.

Saturday will be another day of strong, gusty winds.

Winds may gust upwards of 40 mph; higher gusts are possible along and within a few miles of the immediate lakeshore.

Sporadic power outages may occur, so it will be a good idea to keep your phone fully charged in the event that you lose power.

Secure anything light or loose in your yard, including, but not limited to, holiday decorations, trash cans, and lightweight lawn furniture.

Winds will gradually diminish late Saturday night into Sunday.

Sunday will be a much more quiet day, but it will be seasonably chilly.

High temperatures will be in the low 40s.

In the meantime, expect a little warm up for Friday!

Strong southerly winds will push afternoon highs into the low 50s.

(It will be windy though, so it’ll feel a touch cooler than that.)
