A strong winter-like storm is hitting Western Washington with wind, rain, and heavy mountain snow on this first Monday of May. A Wind Advisory is in effect through 7 p.m. tonight for the entire Puget Sound region. Westerly winds 20-30 mph with gusts up to 50 mph are forecast throughout the day. The strongest winds across Western Washington will be felt on Whidbey Island, Camano Island, and through the Admiralty Inlet area. A High Wind Warning is in effect for those areas where gusts up to 60 mph are forecast.
The steady rain from overnight has turned to showers. With the strong westerly flow, a convergence zone is forecast over the sound where heavy showers and isolated thunderstorms are possible this afternoon. We are also looking at heavy mountain snow today, falling all the way down to the 2,000 foot level. This means all Cascade passes will be seeing fresh snow. A Winter Storm Warning is in effect for the Cascades and Olympics through midnight where 6 ! to 12 inches of snow is forecast.
