WeatherWatcher: High Wind Watch for Friday

Thursday, December 13, 2018

National Weather Service in Seattle

The National Weather Service in Seattle has issued a High Wind Watch for Friday December 14, 2018 for the area that includes Shoreline and Lake Forest Park. The high wind advisory for Thursday December 13 was cancelled at 4:41am, with strong winds were no longer expected for Thursday. We had a maximum wind gust at the Richmond Beach station Thursday morning of 27mph shortly before 7am.

The high wind watch is in effect from Friday morning at 10am until Friday evening at 7pm. There is a lot of uncertainty with this storm, depending on where it makes landfall. Most models show the winds peaking around 1pm, with a second handful of models having the winds peak later in the evening around 5-7pm. Winds could gust as high as 60mph through the area if the storm makes landfall in just the right spot along Vancouver Island.

Updated Forecast: After our wind storm Friday things are expected to calm down a bit for Saturday as we have another break in the weather before the next storm system arrives. Showers are possible on Saturday, with temperatures in the low 50's.

Sunday our next storm comes in bringing breezy conditions and more rain. We have a forecast for rain at times through next Thursday, with highs in the low 50's, and lows in the mid 40's. With all of these storms we are getting a lot of mountain snow, so that should help our snowpack drought we were having in November.
