West Seattle weather: Wind advisory today, flood watch tonight

While the rain’s taking a break right now, the wind kicked up early this morning, out of the south, and that finally brought an official “wind advisory” from the National Weather Service, in effect until 3 this afternoon, with gusts as high as 45 mph. The photo above is from Constellation Park south of Alki Point, where sea spray blew over the seawall – and onto Beach Drive SW at times – when this morning’s 12-foot high tide collided with wind-fueled waves. The “flood watch” alert is still set to take effect about the time the rain returns this evening, with heavy rain expected at times through Sunday, so our “clear your storm drains” advice from yesterday continues. Also, if you live in a flood zone and need sandbags, you can get them at Delridge Community Center (4501 Delridge Way SW).

    Got it. Gutters and drains cleared. I am guessing these flood watch warnings will put an end to the warnings from SPU about low water reservoir levels.

    I read that eight feet of snow is expected on Mt. Rainier – within 48 hr.?!

Sorry, comment time is over.
