PREVIOUS ALERT

A strong storm system is expected to develop rapidly while moving
across the northeast Pacific Friday, making landfall near
Vancouver Island Saturday. This system may rapidly develop a
second, equally strong low pressure center precariously close to
the Oregon and Washington Coast early Saturday morning, which
would lead to a very windy day Saturday across southwest
Washington and northwest Oregon.

For now, be advised that there is the potential for strong and
damaging winds Saturday throughout southwest Washington and
northwest Oregon. While the threat is greatest along the coast as
usual, there is also the potential for strong winds inland if the
low pressure system tracks close enough to the coast. Impacts may
include downed trees, branches, and power lines, leading to
potential power outages Saturday, even for inland areas.

Now would be a good time to ensure you are prepared for the
impacts of a wind storm. Secure loose outdoor objects, make sure
you have a flashlight and plenty of batteries in case power
outages do occur Saturday afternoon and evening.

Details remain uncertain, and a lot can still change with the
forecast track of this storm and its expected impacts. Stay tuned
to the latest forecast by visiting weather.gov or your favorite
source of weather information.
