The clear skies and calm winds today, November 11th, appear to make up the calm between the storms. While the Tuesday evening windstorm was blustery enough, forecasts are for a second storm arriving Thursday to be a bit stronger.
Advisories issued by the National Weather Service today warn about a flood risk lasting through Sunday and high winds through Friday.
The extent of the flood risk remains uncertain as forecast models are not in agreement over where the heaviest mountain rainfall, 6 to 8 inches, will occur. Some models show it happening in the northern Cascades while others place it mostly in the central Cascades.
The high winds are expected to begin about Thursday morning and last through Friday afternoon. Gusts of 50 MPH are likely during this storm. The possibility of power outages exists with winds this strong so being prepared is advised.
