This system on Saturday will incorporate the remnants of Super Typhoon Songda in the western Pacific. That storm will hit Saturday, but exactly where and how hard is tough to predict. "This would be a worst-case scenario leading to a historical windstorm for almost all of Western Washington that would be long remembered", reads the National Weather Service warning.
"A true monster storm, potentially as strong as the most powerful storm in NW history (the Columbus Day Storm of 1962) will be approaching our area on Saturday".
"An impressively stormy period is coming up for western Washington from Thursday through the weekend", the statement reads. This would be a worst-case scenario leading to a historical windstorm for almost all of Western Washington that would be long remembered. "You'll see the southeast wind start to pick up Thursday afternoon. It'll be a double punch".
A high wind watch is in effect from 6 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 13, to 6 a.m. Friday, Oct. 14.
"But inland locations such as the Puget Sound Region and the I-5 corridor of southwest Washington would experience the type of windstorm that would normally be expected a few times each storm season". Gusts could reach 60 miles per hour and three or more inches of rain is forecast.
If you happened to have missed the latest news or updates, here's an important heads up, there are three powerful storms heading our way, with the third one on Saturday possibly making history.
Strong winds are expected across the western Washington lowlands early Thursday evening, peaking around midnight or early Friday morning. The center has a 2/3 chance of bypassing the Washington coast, resulting in a strong seasonal windstorm.
