... A strong Pacific storm could bring strong winds and locally
heavy rain to western Washington on Saturday...

A much stronger system will impact the region on Saturday. This
system has the potential to bring winds of 20 to 35 mph with
gusts of 45 to 50 mph to parts of the coast... northwest
interior... and I-5 corridor. Winds this strong usually occur in
fall and winter. Thus... this wind event could create more problems
due to the deciduous trees still having their leaves. This will
make the branches more prone to snapping in strong winds. In
addition to the possibility of downed tree limbs... the gusty winds
could cause local power outages.

Rain will be locally heavy at times on Saturday. Rainfall amounts
of 1 to 3 inches are forecast for the coast and in the
mountains... with a half to one inch elsewhere... during the 24 hour
period ending at 5 am PDT Sunday. This amount of rain will likely
end or help reduce the size of any ongoing wildfires.

In addition to the wind and rain... temperatures will be below
normal on Saturday. Highs are forecast to be mainly in the mid to
upper 60s across The Lowlands.

Those planning outdoor activities in the mountains in particular
this weekend should pay close attention to the latest forecasts
from the National Weather Service.
