...POTENTIAL FOR STRONG WINDS THIS WEEKEND FOR SOUTHWEST
WASHINGTON AND NORTHWEST OREGON...

A LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM IS FORECAST TO DEVELOP WELL OFF THE
NORTHERN CALIFORNIA COAST FRIDAY AND MOVE NORTHEAST TOWARD THE
OREGON AND WASHINGTON COASTS AND THEN INLAND ON
SATURDAY...POTENTIALLY BRINGING HIGH WINDS TO THE COAST AND EVEN
THE WILLAMETTE VALLEY. IF HIGH WINDS DO OCCUR...THEY WOULD KNOCK
DOWN TREES AND CAUSE POWER OUTAGES AS WELL AS MAKE DRIVING
DIFFICULT...PARTICULARLY IN HIGH PROFILE VEHICLES AND ON BRIDGES
AND OVERPASSES. AT THIS TIME IT LOOKS LIKE THE HIGHEST WINDS WOULD
OCCUR LATE SATURDAY AFTERNOON AND INTO THE OVERNIGHT HOURS.
