But now the real treat....here is a recent (8 AM) image from the Langley Hill radar near Hoquiam. You can clearly see the swirl of precipitation around the low center. We get these images roughly every 6 minutes and they tels us exactly where this storm (and others) are located. An extraordinary tools for local meteorologists. I should show this to Senator Cantwell, who played a major role in getting the radar.
Seattle WindWatch is always a good place to check out high wind situations in our area and its display of the UW wind forecast shows strong gusts (greater than 50 mph) over Puget Sound, the coast, and over NW Washington. Over 40 mph possible over Seattle.
Some of you will lose power....sorry. Charge your phones and devices NOW!
