West Seattle Weather Watch: “Wind advisory” blows in tonight

The National Weather Service’s latest forecast has a “wind advisory” in effect from 6 pm tonight till 7 am tomorrow. Read it here (that is the fixed link for the metro-area forecast, by the way, usually updated at least 3 times daily). As of right this moment, Cliff Mass hasn’t posted his daily update, but he did write last night about how he and others failed to accurately anticipate yesterday’s “wind event.” 12:15 PM UPDATE: Today’s update is now posted – and he’s not as worried about the end of the week as some forecasters you might have seen/heard.

    Looks like Cliff Mass just updated and is backing off his Friday predictions (yeah!) at least for now… I’m currently posting a “barking dog report” at Beach Drive Blog because I’m concerned that the winds combined with our high tides and forecasted waves is going to cause some troubles tomorrow morning. I hope I’m wrong (I’m no Cliff Mass). :)

    Any idea of the wind direction? If we plan it just right we can get all the garbage to blow to the transfer station… :-)

    Heck, I’m still waiting for “The winds are above 8 miles per hour – no garbage pickup today”

Sorry, comment time is over.
