Strong storm to impact Southwest Washington region

South Bend, WA – The National Weather Service (NWS) in Portland has issued a High Wind Warning for the South Washington Coast. The strongest storm system so far this winter will bring strong wind to our region. The warning is effective from 4:00 p.m. tonight to 10:00 p.m. Saturday. The NWS is forecasting sustained south winds of 35-40 mph, with gusts to 60-75 mph.

The National Weather Service (NWS) in Portland has also issued a High Surf Warning for the South Washington Coast in effect from 4:00 p.m. Saturday to 10:00 a.m. Sunday. The peak surf Saturday evening coincides with high tide and there is potential for some minor coastal flooding.

Precautionary/Preparedness Actions:

A High Wind Warning means that a hazardous high wind event is expected or occurring. Sustained winds of 40 mph or more or gusts of 58 mph or more can lead to property damage.

A High Surf Warning means that dangerously high surf will batter beaches in the advisory area, producing deadly rip currents and minor beach erosion.  Dangerous surf may move large debris items like logs up to beaches. Avoid walking on jetties, rocks, coastal cliff, and along the water’s edge.
