West Seattle Weather Watch: After the fog, some wind

The National Weather Service has a “special weather statement” out for our area, expecting things to get breezy, maybe even windy, late in the day tomorrow and on into Monday. Here’s the full text of the alert. The NWS isn’t predicting HIGH wind – likely 15-25 mph with possible gusts to about 40 – but it’ll be coming out of the north, which the NWS describes as rare. On the bright side, the conditions that are expected to bring this breeziness are the ones that have finally sent away the seemingly endless (yet lovely at times) fog.

SUNDAY MORNING UPDATE: Here’s the newest version of the “special weather statement” – still the same basic outlook, some wind (but NOT windstorm level) out of the north kicking up this afternoon, strongest along the shoreline.

    It would be a real shame if all my leaves blew off my yard. :-)

    Although it can be cold with both the water temps and wind combined the point in West Seattle produces also a rarity and that is long mellow breaking right hand waves which are surf able if the individual has a longboard or similar. I have got rides fairly long distances like quarter to half a block been some years now, early 90’s if I recall.

    Sure enough NW, I saw the best surf I’ve seen in my year living at the beach. Tempted to get drysuit on and kayak surf.

    Was phenomenal wish we had north winds like that more often
    I plan to get my gear and board all ready for The Big One.

Sorry, comment time is over.
