Wind Advisory issued for Saturday

National Weather Service Seattle office forecasters have issued a Wind Advisory for 6pm this evening, Saturday, December 22nd, through 4am Sunday morning

Forecasters warn easterly and then southeasterly winds will increase late this afternoon, peak this evening and overnight and turn southwesterly as they decrease Sunday morning. Sustained winds of 25 to 35mph with gusts to 45mph are to be expected.

Winds from this system are expected to be less powerful than those that hit area Thursday and resulted in widespread damage, leaving hundreds of thousands without power around the Puget Sound area, including Whatcom County. But these winds could hamper clean up and recovery efforts still underway from Thursday’s storm.

Forecasters say a strong frontal system will bring gusts of up to 40mph along the coast and slightly stronger winds gusts to 45mph over the north interior waters and adjacent land including the San Juan islands, Whidbey Island, Camano Island and western Whatcom County. Winds will subside as the system leaves the area Sunday.
