BELLINGHAM As a light breeze lingers from a windstorm on Tuesday, Feb. 18, another looming storm has prompted a wind advisory in effect from 6 p.m. Wednesday to 3 a.m. Thursday.
Tuesdays windstorm brought gusts of up to 60 mph, which will only be a shade stronger than Wednesdays, National Weather Service meteorologist Andy Haner said.
It may not be quite as strong, Haner said. But it will come in fast.
Wednesday night could yield wind gusts of up to 50 mph, which could snap tree branches and cause power outages. Mt. Baker Ski Area will get a heavy dumping of snow, Haner said, with about a foot of new snow.
The lowlands will see temperatures comfortably above freezing, Haner said, which could mean another helping of rain, similar to re-cent storms in the area.
