WeatherWatcher: Double windstorms, High Wind Advisory issued

Sunday, November 12, 2017

Monday - Tuesday are going to be windy days as a series of storms move through the area. The first and strongest storm is expected to arrive early Monday morning. A high wind advisory has been issued by the National Weather Service in Seattle. The advisory is in effect from Monday 7am until Monday 7pm.

Winds are expected to pick up in the morning hours and peak between 11am and 4pm. The advisory states that wind gusts to 55mph are possible. There is a lot of uncertainty with this storm, with models varying from gusts to 35mph to as strong as 60mph.

In this scenario it is possible for this storm to become a non-event or it could intensify and cause a sudden high wind warning to be issued in the morning hours. Regardless of strength, power outages are expected as soils are wet and some of our trees are still holding onto summer foliage.

Tuesday a second system is bringing renewed winds, but at this time they are expected to remain in the 25-35mph range. With these storms you can expect rain as well. We are looking at 1-2 inches of rainfall between these two windstorms, ending Wednesday morning.

Beyond Wednesday it appears a continued series of storm fronts are moving through; right now Friday is indicated as another windy day. Typical November weather for the northwest.
