I'm about 200 miles inland and and we're under a high wind warning.

Seattle is looking at 60mph gusts between 5-11pm.

The sensor closest to me is the ARC (American River College) one.

It looks like I might another 2-3 inches of rain this weekend.

Everyone be smart and safe. I saw a graphic showing a possible 12-18" of rain near Eureka!
Think Matthew. This is a typhoon hitting you.
Oh, yeah... Portland has more tornado warnings in the past few days than in the last twenty years. This type of storm (tropical in nature) can spin them up really fast.

Edited for the, "Oh, yeah...".

Not seeing that rain yet.. But the wind started back up a few hours ago...
Rain, even heavy rain, and the occasional VERY heavy rain, isn't new here... But 12-18" would be about the most I remember.

Got plenty of supplies, devices are charged, grill bottle is full (and grill is under cover), and things are as battened down as they get.

Looking at the rain gauges in the area, some solid rain but no rivers showing flooding. Hard to say if there has been so much rain that the wind will take out trees.

Seems pretty mild so far.

I had a ticke to the Safeway Open in Napa today -- but decided not to go. No rain right now, but all day yesterday. So walking around in the mud didnt sound all that fun.

Looks like no rain and 10 MPH winds right now, but by lunch time 20 MPH winds and 50% chance of rain and gets steadily worse through the afternoon. =(

We get an annual rainfall of 6" so ANY precipitation is out of the ordinary. So no storm but a pleasant drizzle. Weather report predicts 10-20 mph wind.

We had very heavy rain yesterday and the rivers are rising pretty fast. Last night we worked at an emergency shelter for the homeless, that slept a lot of wet and cold people. Hot soup and stews helped.

All quiet here in Kirkland. Very light wind, light rain. I worked in Seattle Friday, in lower Queen Anne. After some wind in the morning it was also mild; the afternoon was sunny and pleasant. A few power outages around Capital Hill. The great thing was no traffic on the 520 bridge over Lake Washington, apparently everybody stayed home.

Could get dicey tonight on the Washington coast, plus South Sound (Olympia, Tacoma) and counties north of Seattle. The worst Seattle will see is 30 mph winds and some rain, which is fairly normal for this time of year.

What area are you in, Phy?
Thank you for working in a shelter.

We've had heavy rain and lots of wind today. Wind was up to 44 mph with gusts to 55+ mph around noon but both rain and wind seem to be tapering off. More heavy rain is forecast for Sunday and Sunday night.

My power went out but was back on a few minutes later (my new UPS worked fine).

I'm on the coast, 20 mi. south of the Oregon border.

I live just north of Seattle
News stations have been hyping the Storms for the last couple of days.
Nothing happened Thursday night or Friday night.
The latest Model shows wind in the 20 to 30 Mph with gusts 40 to 50
The statons are still talking about 60 mph winds They don't mention that that is gusts.
A stop sign with a rotted post fell over up the street. I almost took a photo and sent it to the tv stations showing the terrible damage in our area
I do get concerned about high winds our 20000 sqft lot has about 12 trees that are 100' to 160' tall not to mention the 30 other smaller trees

So far it's been less windy at my place than a storm from a few weeks ago. It's pretty much calm right now.

So far, it's been some wind and rain... Just like every winter.
No Great Pacific Storm... Just some wind, and rain...
Weather folks have become such drama queens.

We survived the Storm
The only damage in Brier is a stop sign with a rotted post that Fell.
