WeatherWatcher UPDATE: High Wind Advisory issued for Wednesday night with bigger storm Friday

Thursday, December 13, 2018

The National Weather Service in Seattle issued a high wind advisory for the Shoreline and Lake Forest Park areas at 3:06PM PST Wednesday. The wind advisory is in effect until noon Thursday. We are expecting 20-35mph winds from the south with gusts up to 50mph.

Winds are expected to pick up Wednesday evening with the strongest winds early Thursday morning. Local power outages are possible as well as downed tree limbs.

A wind advisory means winds of 35mph are expected.

Updated Wednesday at 10:25PM:
A much more serious storm is expected on Friday as of Wednesday evening's special forecast update. A deepening low pressure system is expected to approach southern Vancouver Island early Friday morning.

Winds are expected to increase shortly after midnight Friday morning, gusting to 40mph. By late Friday morning southeast winds of 25-40mph are expected with gusts up to 55mph. Winds are expected to gradually decrease in the afternoon and evening hours of Friday. Winds this strong can cause numerous power outages, fallen tree limbs, and fallen trees.

At this time there has not been a high wind watch, advisory or warning issued for Friday. I anticipate that the National Weather Service will have some kind of advisory or warning issued by Thursday afternoon or evening for Friday. Check back here or at my website for updates on watches, warnings or advisories.
