Yikes

This is the local forecast from the Weather Underground...

"... High Wind Warning in effect from 4 am Sunday to 10 PM PST Monday for the central Oregon coast... The National Weather Service in Portland has issued a High Wind Warning which is in effect from 4 am Sunday to 10 PM PST Monday.

The high wind watch is no longer in effect. Two periods of very strong winds are expected Sunday and Monday along the central Oregon coast. The first period of wind will begin late tonight and continue through most of Sunday... with south winds 35 to 45 mph and gusts to 75 mph near headlands and beaches and 65 mph in coastal communities.

The winds will briefly decrease a bit Sunday night then increase even stronger late Sunday night and Monday to 30 to 50 mph with gusts to near 100 mph near The Headlands and beaches and 80 mph in the coastal communities. The winds will decrease Monday night once the associated cold front pushes onshore. These winds... especially those late Sunday night and Monday... are strong enough to produce substantial damage and cause power outages..."

Oh joy. It was snowing lightly here this morning, and the winds are already starting to kick up. Better buckle up, we're in for a bumpy ride!
