WeatherWatcher: Storm Update - High wind warning issued

Sunday, September 29, 2013


  • High Wind Warning
  • Rain to continue
  • Yesterday's data
High Wind Warning - The National Weather Service in Seattle has issued a High Wind Warning for areas including Shoreline and Lake Forest Park. The warning is in effect from 5pm this evening to 4am Monday morning. Winds are expected to increase from the south at 20-35 mph with gusts up to 60 mph. Winds this strong can down trees, tree limbs, and cause power outages. Considering how early in the season this is, many more trees could be damaged than normal due to the summer foliage still being attached to most of the trees in the area.

Rain to continue - Watch for standing water on roadways especially tomorrow morning. Another 1-2 inches of rain could fall this evening and overnight. Standing water and some urban flooding is likely.

Yesterday's data - Very fall-like day Saturday with temperatures in the 50's all day.  We received 1.05 inches of rain, almost half of that within 20 minutes at about 4:30 PM as the second storm front of the weekend moved through.  Winds were breezy, small limbs were seen on streets in the area, probably not much over 30mph gusts.

Stay safe out there!
