Breezy Wednesday with High Wind Warnings for parts of Skagit, Whatcom counties; north coast

Wednesday morning we have breezy weather for a lot of the area, with stronger wind over the North Interior.

Most areas will have wind in the 15-25 mph range with gusts between 25-35 mph. However, we have High Wind Warnings from the north Coast, through the Strait, into western Skagit and western Whatcom counties until Thanksgiving morning at 6 a.m.

The wind will range between 25-40 mph with gusts in the 50-55 mph and potentially range closer to the Fraser River Canyon and over the water.

I expect the wind to peak late this morning, calm down slightly and then potentially pick back up again this evening.  We'll have to watch for power outages and possibly downed limbs or trees.

Like I mentioned, the rest of the area will be breezy to windy with offshore wind. I expect partly cloudy skies with highs in the upper-30s and lower-40s.  If you're traveling over the passes, I do see some light snow showers especially over the eastern side of the cascades where the showers could be slightly stronger.

Thursday and Friday look fantastic, but cold!  Look for clear skies and 20s and 30s to start, with sunshine and highs around the upper-30s and lower-40s.

Saturday will be sunny to start, with some increasing high clouds and then eventually some rain could move in around or just after midnight.  Depending on the timing of the rain, it could, and probably will, start as some snow or some wet snow before turning to rain.

We may see a few showers Monday with partly sunny skies on Tuesday.  Have a safe Holiday!
