...Potential for strong wind 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 coast Friday night...and then move inland Saturday. There is the potential for high wind along the coast and windy conditions in the Willamette Valley and southwest Washington interior lowlands. There is still plenty of uncertainty regarding the strength and timing of this system. Should high winds occur...downed trees and power outages would be possible. At this time it looks like the strongest wind would occur late Saturday afternoon through the evening.
