Expires 7:00 PM EDT on October 24, 2014


... Potential for strong wind this weekend for southwest Washington
and northwest Oregon...

A low pressure system is forecast to develop well off the
northern California coast Friday and move northeast toward the
Oregon and Washington coast Friday night... and then move inland
Saturday. There is the potential for high wind along the coast and
windy conditions in the Willamette Valley and southwest Washington
interior lowlands. There is still plenty of uncertainty regarding
the strength and timing of this system. Should high winds
occur... downed trees and power outages would be possible. At this
time it looks like the strongest wind would occur late Saturday
afternoon through the evening.
