Weather Alert Detail

  • Special Weather Statement for Pierce County, Washington
  • Special Weather Statement issued April 04 at 11:16AM PDT by NWS
  • Effective: Wednesday, April 4, 2018 at 11:16 a.m.
  • Expires: Thursday, April 5, 2018 at 6 a.m.
  • ...WINDY WEATHER POSSIBLE SATURDAY...
    Windy conditions are possible Saturday over much of Western
    Washington. A deep low pressure center is forecast by most weather
    models to move north off the coast on Saturday. This will bring
    strong southerly winds to Washington.
    High wind is possible in some areas. As always, the exact track
    and strength of the low will determine where and whether any high
    wind will occur. The zones most likely to get high wind--sustained
    wind of 40 mph or gusts to 58 mph--are the coast and northern
    inland areas. Most other places exposed to southerly wind could
    have wind in the 20-35 mph range, with gusts to 50 mph.
    Details such as exact timing and actual wind speeds are unclear at
    this point. Later model runs should sharpen the forecast. This
    message is intended as a notification that windy conditions are
    possible Saturday.
    There will also be a period of heavy rain in the Olympics. This
    could bring the Skokomish River to near flood stage late Saturday
    or Sunday. Other rivers will experience significant rises, but are
    not forecast to get close to flood stage.
