2:55 PM: More wind is on the way – and this time there’s an official alert: The National Weather Service has announced a “wind advisory” for our area, from 11 pm tonight until noon tomorrow. Gusts could reach 50 mph after rising to 15 to 30 mph out of the southwest, according to NWS. See the full alert here. (Thanks to WSB commenter “Meteorologist Patrick” for the heads-up!)

5:24 PM: The advisory is now extended through 4 pm Monday. The revised advisory also says gusts could reach 55 mph.


  1. High tide at 4:36 am is 11.5 ft. Not a king tide or anything, but a decent high tide. If the wind really blows from the S or SW all night at 30 mph, that will build up some big waves by 4:30 am. Add some 50 mph gusts and there may be some impressive waves slamming into Beach Drive.

  2. Call Parka Boy now! I wish the storms were timed better so I could watch them when I wasn’t at work or asleep. Ever since I upgraded to double-paned windows the wind in the Schmitz Park trees has been muffled to a whisper (and so has the traffic, random kid screams, so it is for good.)

  4. @TL… No problem

    There is a new hitch and that being a ” Lee Low ” which will likely aid higher gusts especially Everett South and Westward, some local gusts could reach 65mph+ overnight and early to mid morning

    Stay safe

  6. Thar she blows, methinks I’ll be keeping my most sacred trinkets indoors on this fine evening, mayhap the winds will bring forth the changes of season.
