FERNDALE, Wash. — National Weather Service forecasters in the Seattle office have updated the timing and wind strength estimates for a wind storm expected this week.

Yesterday’s High Wind Watch has been upgraded to a High Wind Warning this morning, November 26th and will be in effect between 6am tomorrow, Wednesday 7pm tonight to 6am Thursday.

In addition to the timing change, forecasters warn wind gusts up to 60mph are now possible.

Sustained northeast winds of 25 to 45mph are expected along with the strong gusts due a low pressure system moving inland near the Oregon-California border while a high pressure system builds over northern British Columbia. The difference in air pressure over the region is expected to create strong Fraser Valley outflow winds.

    1- Time the get the gen sets and chain saws ready to go, and batteries for the flashlights. And, fill the bathtub with flushing water. Etc…….

    2- I would suggest the Ferndale News web guru change up the notification e-mail so that the big blue button is for “Read more of this post” rather than to “comment”. Got to know what one is commenting on first, and to me that should be the focus of the notification. News first, blather second ;’ >
