The National Weather Service in Seattle has issued a Wind Advisory – in effect from 10 PM this Saturday evening to noon Sunday – and a Flood Watch for the Skokomish River – in effect from Saturday evening through Sunday evening.
Forecasters expect southeast wind increasing tonight to 15 to 30 mph with gusts to 45 mph. Winds will increase overnight and peak around daybreak Sunday. Winds this strong can down tree limbs and cause local power outages. Also these wins can make driving difficult, especially for high profile vehicles.
Forecasters also say two to three inches of rain will fall tonight and Sunday morning. Minor flooding is likely on the Skokomish river Sunday afternoon and evening.
