High winds Monday could disrupt power
High winds strong enough to snap tree branches and cause power outages are expected to roll through Western Washington Monday.
Gusts of up to 55 mph, with sustained winds of 20 to 30 mph, are forecast for the Central Puget Sound area under a “Wind Advisory” issued Sunday night by the National Weather Service.
The strongest winds were expected to hit between midnight and mid-morning Monday, but windy conditions were forecast to continue into the late afternoon. In that same time period, up to a foot and a half of snow is expected in the mountains.
