Expect Gusty Winds and Some Showers in Parts of Western Washington

Bryan Dijkhuizen

Today, a strong upper-level low and its associated surface cyclone are located off the coast of Oregon and will move southward toward California throughout the day.

Expect gusty winds along the Cascade passes and portions of the East Puget Sound lowlands, with wind speeds of 25 to 35 mph and gusts up to 50 mph possible.

Most areas in western Washington will remain dry, except for the southern fringes of the forecast area, where some shower activity is expected.

Gusty Winds

The winds will be gusty along the Cascade passes and parts of the East Puget Sound lowlands. Wind speeds will range from 25 to 35 mph, with gusts up to 50 mph possible at times. A wind advisory remains in effect. The winds will peak by mid-morning and gradually ease again in the evening. Other parts of western Washington will also experience breezy conditions.


Except for the southern fringes of the forecast area (Lewis, Thurston, Grays Harbor, and Pierce counties), most areas in western Washington will remain dry.

However, the wrap-around moisture from the low will bring some shower activity to the southern fringes of the forecast area. Overall precipitation amounts will be light, with most spots expected to receive only a couple hundredths of an inch. The east side of the Olympics and the southern portion of Lewis county may receive higher amounts of precipitation.


Highs today will continue to warm a few degrees, reaching the upper 50s to near 60. Wednesday will be the nicest day of the week, with temperatures expected to warm a few degrees from Tuesday and topping out in the upper 50s to low 60s across the area.

However, the temperature will cool on Thursday, with highs only expected to reach the upper 40s along the coast and low to mid-50s across the interior.


A weak trough will move into the region on Thursday, sparking some shower activity across the region, primarily along the coast and higher terrain. This will mark the start of a much cooler and wetter period of weather heading into Friday and the weekend.
