WeatherWatcher: Power blinked and wind is coming

Tuesday, December 27, 2011

Another power glitch as the lights went out for about 30 seconds, then came back on around 6pm on Tuesday.. From what I've figured so far from people I've talked to, this effected the whole north end of Shoreline. I suspect it was City Light transferring the load back to the original mains that got damaged on Christmas Day.

The National Weather Service in Seattle issued a Wind Advisory at 2:55pm Tuesday afternoon. The advisory is in effect from 6 PM, December 27th, 2011 until 4 AM the next morning December 28, 2011. 

This advisory covers all of the Puget Sound Lowlands, including Shoreline, and Lake Forest Park. Winds are expected to pick up out of the south to southeast after 6pm tonight, and peak between 10pm and 2am. Winds are expected to be sustained between 20-35mph with gusts up to 50mph. This appears to be rivaling the Christmas day winds.

A wind advisory is issued when sustained winds of 30 - 39mph or gusts of 45 - 57mph are likely. Winds this strong can snap small branches, cause local power outages, and knock over small, shallow rooted, unhealthy, or dead trees.

It may not hurt to secure any loose belongings or decorations on personal properties. Stay safe!
