Better buy an extra can for Thursday and cement that hair in place. Or else, it’s going to get ugly!
It’s looking like a wild Thursday for those of us living in Washington and Oregon.
By late morning, we could start seeing I-5 Corridor gusts of 40mph.
Normally, it’s not that big of deal because earlier storms in the season have blown down the trees that were ready to go. But have you been in the backyard lately? It’s like a mud bog! So it won’t surprise me to see scattered power outages along the coast and in the Willamette Valley.
Gusty Wind & Downpours: The Breakdown For The Northwest
- Winds gradually increase in the I-5 Corridor, with 40-50mph gusts possible from around 11am to 3pm, although it’s breezy longer than that
- A Wind Advisory for Kelso to Corvallis starts at 10am and lasts into the evening
- Coastal gusts could hit 80mph some spots and a High Wind Warning runs until 4pm
- At times, sunshine may be around. But watch for heavy downpours to move through anytime mid-day or later. Thunder is possible.
- It’s a Winter Storm Warning for the Cascades today, with 1-2 feet of snow possible for Meadows and Timberline. But wind gusts will likely top 50mph.
And now, some exciting news: if you’ve been begging for a dry day to get something done outside, you’re about to get your wish. Friday. That’s right, Friday looks dry before we get back to the rain over the weekend.
In the meantime, I hope that Aqua Net works for you today!
