…UNUSUALLY STRONG WINDS EXPECTED OVER SOUTHWEST WASHINGTON AND
NORTHWEST OREGON THURSDAY…

A strong frontal system for June will move through northwest
Oregon and southwest Washington on Thursday, producing strong
winds for June across the area.

While high winds are not expected, winds along the coast are
expected to gust between 40 and 50 mph, with the strongest gusts
along the beaches and headlands.

Over the higher terrain of the coastal mountains and the
Cascades, winds could gust up to around 45 mph.

In the inland valleys, south winds could reach 15 to 25 mph with
gusts to 35 mph. While these are not normally speeds sufficient
for a wind advisory, with trees now having leafed out, some tree
and limb damage is possible which could lead to a few power
disruptions.

In addition, this weather will make outdoor activities in the
mountains difficult. Mountain climbing is not recommended.

Be prepared for the change in the weather on Thursday.
