Get ready for stormy weather across western Washington over the next 24 hours. If you can do it safely, try and clear the drains in your neighborhood to prevent urban flooding.
A strong area of low pressure is moving up the Oregon coast this morning. By this afternoon, it will generate strong winds for much of western Washington. Along with the wind, expect bands of rain and even a chance of a thundershowers. A WIND ADVISORY goes up at 3 this afternoon for much of our area. Highs today will top out in the upper 50s to low 60s.
Tonight damaging winds are possible for most of our area. The strongest gust gusts will reach 50mph. That is easily strong enough to topple some trees, especially considering our waterlogged ground from all the recent heavy rain. The high winds will continue overnight into Sunday morning.
Sunday starts out breezy, but things should calm down by the afternoon. Showers will taper off and a few sunbreaks will pop out by the end of the day. Highs on Sunday will stay in the upper 50s to low 60s.
Monday is looking like a mix of showers and sunbreaks before a wet system moves in on Tuesday.
