I don't believe anything yet...but
I don't want to get anyone excited.
And because of Typhoon Megi there is a loss of predictability over the Pacific. So the chances are it won't happen.
But with all of that said...look at the latest forecast for Sunday morning at 8 AM!
An extraordinarily deep low center just off Vancouver Island. 964 mb! And each model run brings the storm closer!
And look at the winds offshore in the next plot. Sustained winds offshore of 55 knots and more and certainly hurricane-strength gusts!
It could all disappear in the next run. But if it is still there in tomorrow night's forecasts, I would get excited. At this point we are only talking about very strong winds over the Pacific and the coast and strong winds over the Strait of Georgia. Not Puget Sound and south.
