WeatherWatcher: high wind advisory

Sunday, March 11, 2012

The NWS (National Weather Service in Seattle) has issued a high wind advisory for Everett and vicinity including the cities of Edmonds and Mountlake Terrace. Given that this advisory is in effect for the cities bordering us, things could get pretty windy.

-The advisory is in effect Monday March 12th, 2012, 1AM - 1PM. A strong surface low will make landfall over night, generating a huge pressure gradient.

-Winds southeast 20 to 30 MPH with gusts up to 50 MPH are likely late tonight and Monday morning.
-These winds can topple trees and cause power outages.

A wind advisory is issued when sustained winds of 30-39 MPH or gusts of 45-57 MPH are likely.
