Talkin' 'bout the weather - the storm

| No Comments

I can feel it out there.  Big. has this for the island:

High Wind Watch from SUN 8:00 AM PDT until MON 8:00 AM PDT
WHAT...Southeast wind of 40 mph with gusts to 60 mph are possible.
WHERE...San Juan County, Western Whatcom County, Western Skagit County, Admiralty Inlet Area, Western Strait of Juan De Fuca, North Coast and Central Coast.
WHEN...From Sunday morning through Monday morning.
IMPACTS...Damaging winds could blow down trees and power lines. Widespread power outages are possible. Travel could be difficult, especially for high profile vehicles.

So far, no outages in Canada to speak of.

Cliff Mass has this update and podcast:

Update on the Strongest Coastal Cyclone in Northwest History and an Introduction to Pacific Cyclones. All in my New Podcast
My new podcast is out (see below) and in it I describe the hurricane-force storms that can hit Northwest and provide an update on the extraordinary Sunday/Monday event.

And I have to admit something: meteorologists are not exactly sure where the big storm will make landfall.

However, the formation of an unprecedented storm is nearly a sure thing, with the very latest forecasts of sea level pressure for Sunday morning from both the U.S. and European models predicteing the strongest Northwest storm in history with pressures below 945 hPa (see below). Just crazy. Equivalent to a category three hurricane.

Wunnerful...   I am scheduled to go up to the farm Sunday as I have a 9:30AM Monday appointment for the van to have service in Bellingham.  We will see what happens
