Livin' on the Edge

Following a briefing from the Portland National Weather Service (NWS), it appears that Cowlitz County is on the outer edge of a High Wind Advisory. They are predicting winds of 25-35 mph with gusts of 50 mph, though it will likely be less in our area and concentrated further southwest. The advisory is beginning at 10:00 p.m. Friday night until 10:00 a.m. Saturday. The freezing level should drop which should minimize flooding concerns.

So far, whether through happenstance, providence or voodoo, we have been shielded from the brunt of Mother Nature's machinations. No, I didn't get a thesaurus for Christmas. Why do you ask? Anyway, there is another storm system following behind the current one which should arrive around Tuesday. NWS is watching this storm pattern and we will know more on Monday. Keep those umbrellas and flashlights handy!
