A potent storm system that unleashed flooding and tornadoes across a large part of the South this week will be responsible for the arrival of high winds to the eastern half of the country beginning on Friday.

Chillier temperatures will pair with these winds to create blustery conditions for millions. Here is a look at this unsettled forecast heading into the weekend weather forecast.

Winds in the Weekend Weather Forecast for Eastern U.S.

The incoming winds will be the result of the difference in the pressure between the storm that impacted the southern U.S. and the area of low pressure that is moving across the Great Lakes region clashing with the high pressure that is moving from the central Rockies and down into the Gulf Coast.

The air circulating in the atmosphere will push from high to low, creating a vacuum effect and generating the high winds.

The winds will be volatile enough to raise the risk of sporadic power outages, tree damage, and travel delays.

For instance, winds blowing across airport runaways can lead to disruptions in air travel. Gusts as high as 50 mph will stretch from Iowa and all the way to Maine to the north and Georgia to the south through Friday night.
