High Wind Watch downgraded to Wind Advisory

The National Weather Service (NWS) office in Seattle canceled the High Wind Watch and replaced it with a Wind Advisory this morning.

According to forecasters, “another round of northerly offshore low level flow, with Fraser River outflow winds (is expected to develop) this evening from around Bellingham northward in Whatcom County and across the north part of the San Juan Islands. High winds (with) sustained 40 mph and/or gusts 60 mph seem unlikely though, and we will change the high wind watch to a wind advisory.”

The Wind Advisory is in effect from 6pm 10pm this evening until noon Monday and predicts sustained north to northeast winds of 25 to 35mph 20 to 30mph with gusts of 45 to 55mph to 50mph.

Combined with forecast subfreezing temperatures, this is expected to produce wind chill values of 10° to 15° according to the advisory statement.
