High wind warning in effect for Bainbridge, Puget Sound

Forecasters say a series of storms bringing rain and damaging wind will hit Western Washington Wednesday night through Sunday.

Rainfall forecast through Sunday evening in the Pacific Northwest.

"Seas could be over 30 feet and possibly 40 feet", he said. It's moving in several hours earlier than anticipated, and it will be over quick. Friday will give us some respite, although with rain showers until Saturday.

After seven months apart, the Bay Area and and not-so-sunny side of Mother Nature expect to renew their stormy relationship late Thursday. According to the weather service, rivers are expected to rise, with flooding remaining most likely in the Olympic Peninsula. This is likely to result in areas of flooding.

Waves as high as 25 feet could batter the coastline and cause widespread erosion while up to a foot of rain is possible along the coast and in the Cascade foothills. No other information was immediately available. Pedestrians and cyclists, as well as drivers, should use extreme caution. This weekend, most area beaches open to Clam Digging.

Batten down the hatches, it looks like there's a "potentially long-remembered" storm coming our way. Do not turn your back on the sea. Since many trees still have their leaves, the winds could have brought down tree branches.

If there is a larger power outage, TID recommends turning off all lights, switches and surge protectors, with the exception of one light, to avoid electrical overload when the power returns. DO NOT attempt to move power lines or trim tree limbs tangled with power lines.

Strong winds are expected along the coast and through the Northwest interior. Rain may pool along edges of roadways and also reduce visibility significantly, creating hazardous driving conditions.
