Special Weather Statement

 Statement as of 3:46 PM PDT on September 20, 2013

... A blustery first day of autumn is expected across western Washington...

A strong but fast moving Pacific storm will bring gusty winds and brief and locally heavy rain to western Washington on Sunday.

Windy conditions can be expected along the coast and in the north interior from the Admiralty Inlet area northward. Winds of 20 to 35 mph with gusts around 50 mph are expected in these areas Sunday afternoon and Sunday evening. Deciduous trees still have their leaves... and this is the first good front of the season... so weak small tree branches will likely be pruned by the front. Brief power outages are possible if branches Ark {sic} across some power lines.

Snow levels in the mountains will range between 5500 and 6000 feet Sunday and Sunday night. Hikers and those with other outdoor interests in the mountains should be prepared for a sudden change in the weather.

Heavy rain at times is anticipated on the coast and in the mountains Sunday and Sunday night. Amounts of 1 to 2 inches are
possible on the coast and in the mountains.

Stay tuned to the latest forecasts from the National Weather Service in Seattle.
