Oregon Wind Event?
Potential for very strong, damaging WINDS Thursday morning if
recent model solutions are accurate. Deep low center (973-984 mob)
is progged to move north and come onshore as it "fills" somewhere
north of Astoria. If this storm develops as modeled, wind gusts at
the coast likely to exceed 85-100 mph; inland across the Willamette
Valley gusts higher than 60 mph are possible. Power outages and
numerous falling trees will be the rule. Be prepared, just in case.
This is short notice because the event has only recently been verifying
on the computers.
Again, a potentially serious wind event may develop early Thursday
over western Oregon. Please keep alert to Nat'l Wx Service notices.
