Windy Weather Could Continue through Christmas
Wind Alert and advice from the National Weather Service and our in-house weather watcher Bill Graham:
From Bill Graham: “Using the philosophy that it is better to know than to not know…and to be prepared….looks like its gonna get a little windy here the next couple of days.
There are small and large changes in the forecast, particularly long term until Christmas Eve. Get ready for a very active weather pattern if things track according to forecasters. There are at least 2 wind events coming to the neighborhood in the next 5 days, possibly 3.
The current HIGH WIND WATCH scheduled for tomorrow morning 7AM lasting to 7PM is now Puget Sound-wide. Wind gusts in South Puget Sound may top 60 mph according to forecasters. This will be a south county storm from the looks of it. It is only a WATCH now because it’s a day away and not in progress.
But we aren’t done yet. The jetstream will be sitting over us for a few more days increasing the probably of additional high wind events between now and Christmas Eve. Certainty is poor right now because they are several days out. But rough timing being provided is:
- Thursday daylight hours
- Saturday night/Sunday morning
Could get really messy here in the next few days. Stay safe out there.” –BG
