UPDATE 1/9/19 6am
Forecasters still expect windy conditions will develop at the coast and north interior today with the strongest winds occurring this afternoon and evening. But the Wind Advisory for the coast and north interior (including the Ferndale area) has been extended into the evening hours tonight. It is now scheduled to be in effect between noon today and 1am tomorrow.

In a move that is becoming cliché for this otherwise relatively mild winter weather season, Seattle office forecasters for the National Weather Service issued a Wind Advisory that will be in effect tomorrow, Wednesday, January 9th, from 6am to 6pm.

Southeast sustained winds of 25 to 35mph with gusts to 50mph are expected in the Admiralty Inlet Area, San Juan County, Western Skagit County and Western Whatcom County.

Strong winds are expected to develop Wednesday morning and continue through the afternoon.

There have been over 10 separate high wind events during this winter season in the Ferndale area.
