Ian, arriving sooner than expected, spawns cancellations, rescheduling

Sept. 29. [UPDATED] With Ian pushing up the coast faster than expected, the Lake Norman area will see higher winds today and rain more likely tomorrow, less so on Saturday. Ian, now a tropical storm off the coast of Georgia, is tracking toward the coast of South Carolina and North Carolina Friday.

The National Weather Service forecasts rain, heavy at times, beginning in the afternoon Friday, with gusts as high as 34 mph. On Saturday, they are calling for showers mainly before 2 pm with wind gusts as high as 21 mph.
