Not that we didn't see this coming, but the continuous rains and the rain in the forecast have increased the threat of landslides in our area.

Will this be the last winter storm for the Harbor?  Let's cross our fingers.  But in the meantime, the National Weather Service Seattle has put out a High Surr Advisory, details below.

Wind expected tonight in an advisory for our area  Low temperature around 52. Windy, with a south southwest wind 16 to 21 mph increasing to 26 to 31 mph after midnight

The National Weather Service is saying that a warmer weather trend is coming this week starting today.  GHS wants to remind you to carry extra water with you, keep hydrated and cool when you can.  Consider this, instead of handing out money to the homeless on the street corner, hand out bottles of water. 

We have a wind advisory that came out early this morning calling for possible high winds from the Southeast 20 to 35 mph, with gusts near 45 mph.
