(National Weather Service – Seattle)
On Monday it will bring a strong storm system to Western Washington on Tuesday. I expect rain, flood potentials and strong winds.
"There is a high level of warning from coastal counties and regions, especially from Everett to the north," said Chris Burk with the Seattle National Weather Service. "The expected winds will reach 40 mph to 60 mph, strong winds will come straight into the water."
KIRO 7 meteorologist Nick Allard has said the storm system is "the first major storm in the season for these areas," so that all body fractures and trees fall down. "
Allard warns that the rain will increase as the morning's morning travels progress. Observations can fall into the Olympics and Northern Cascades in a rain of 8-10 inches, due to flooding concerns. Flood watches are already running from Tuesday to Tuesday.
The Weather Service reported a report of 4 and 7.5 inches in Mondays, Tuesday, on the southwest of the North Cascade. Nooksack, Samish and Stillaguamish may be flooding stage Monday night or Tuesday.
The Wind Advisory General is noon on Monday, Tuesday, at 4:00 pm, in the surrounding areas of Bellingham and San Juan. Towards noon, the National Weather Service was highlighting the great winds surrounding Whidbey Island.
The fight is spinning around Puget Sound. The wind waits for the afternoon and will be the strongest on Monday night.
Coastal, Admiralty Inlet, and North-Eastern Warnings are also on Mondays and Tuesdays. As Allard says, perennial winds expect 20-40 mph windshield winds at 50-60 mph.
Winds are collecting in some places, especially on the Whidbey island, winds at 41 mph @ 6 AM gusting. This is the first rumor of the season, so there will be more impact (body / tree down). Prepare for ground shutdown! #wawx pic.twitter.com/tQhfceltlt

Ferry routes damaged
Storm rains on Monday morning. It can cause cancellations throughout the day.
"It's really strange to cancel any service at the Central Puget Sound, but the Port-Townsend Coupeville harbor vehicle has already been abandoned due to the wind power of the trip," said Ian Sterling Washington Sate Ferries. "50-60 mph from the outside and the highest seas … San Juan Islands would be other places today."
"Mother Nature is still there, and our captains … can make a call as safe as the water," he said. "We have made the planet the safest ferry system and we want to keep it that way."
Sterling said, although the ferries run, even though large ships do not have to be loaded in the waves that come in the back.
With the storm, the National Weather Service warned the rain that frosts pass through the mountains on the first Monday. Freezing rain is the weather adviser at 12:00 p.m., Monday.
Rainfall frost can crash on roads and cause other traffic incidents, especially bridges.
