ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

Living in West Seattle means our exposure to high winds is enhanced by being on a peninsula. We can expect that premise to be tested starting Thursday as high winds return to the area according to the National Weather Service. Downed branches and trees, a mess on the roads and power outages are all possible. It's a good time to secure items outside that might be affected by high winds with gusts up to 55 to 60mph predicted. The stormy weather pattern is expected to continue through Saturday when a very serious storm comes to the area. Coupled with high tides it could cause serious damage.

Here's the forecast from the National Weather Service:

...HIGH WIND WATCH IN EFFECT FROM THURSDAY EVENING THROUGH LATE THURSDAY NIGHT...

THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN SEATTLE HAS ISSUED A HIGH WIND WATCH...WHICH IS IN EFFECT FROM THURSDAY EVENING THROUGH LATE THURSDAY NIGHT.

* TIMING...STRONG WINDS COULD RISE ACROSS THE WESTERN WASHINGTON LOWLANDS EARLY THURSDAY EVENING...WITH WINDS LIKELY PEAKING AROUND MIDNIGHT OR DURING THE EARLY HOURS OF FRIDAY MORNING.
