The better models (GFS and European Center) were right...the intense low center is making landfall on central Vancouver Island, sparing the Puget Sound region a major windstorm.
Here are some marvelous satellite images a few minutes old...one an infrared image and the other a water vapor image. Extraordinary.
The latest surface plots clearly show the circulation on Vancouver Island. Looks like a roughly 970 hPa low.
As the low moves inland and north of us, the north/south pressure differences will increase, as will our surface winds. Already, the winds right about the surface are 25-35 mph and some of that is mixing down.
Winds at exposed mountain locations will get to 80 mph, plus. Northwest Washington will see gusts to 40-60 mph. And it will be quite winds here in Puget Sound (gusts to around 40-45 mph. So get ready...the winds are about to increase.
