A high pressure system over British Columbia and Alberta is sending northerly winds down the Fraser Valley into Whatcom County today. These moderately gusty winds are expected to peak this morning and then begin decreasing.

Wind strength is not expected to get high enough to warrant a wind watch or warning.
