The National Weather Service in Seattle has upgraded the Wind Advisory to a High Wind Warning in effect Saturday evening from 10 PM PST until Sunday morning at 10 AM PST. Winds are expected to increase suddenly between 2 AM and 4AM Sunday morning with gusts as high as 60mph possible in the Shoreline and Lake Forest Park areas.

Bottom line: Downed trees are possible, as well as damage to temporary structures and fences. Power outages are likely as well across the area. Charge your flashlights, phones and other portable electronics now while you still can.

For current weather conditions visit and check out the Richmond Beach station for maximum wind gusts.
