The National Weather Service in Seattle has issued a High Wind Warning for the areas including Shoreline and Lake Forest Park. The warning is in effect on Thursday, 7am - 7pm. Winds are expected to increase Thursday morning to 25-40mph with gusts as high as 60mph. The peak of the winds will likely be around Noon - 3pm.

This storm is almost a carbon copy of the storm we had last Friday, so I'm expecting to see gusty winds as high as 45mph, maybe even to 60mph, especially near the water. Snapped branches and downed trees are likely with local power outages. Winds are expected to remain breezy until after midnight.

This storm is expected to bring around a half inch to 3/4 of an inch of rain. Breezy conditions after the windstorm are expected until after midnight. Rain will change over to showers with temperatures dropping into the mid-upper 30's overnight into Friday.
