Grays Harbor Scanner has been up early this morning looking at all the weather and inclement weather alerts and here is the latest statement from the National Weather Service.  This one is worded a bit better than the one some of our page fans have been arguing about that came from the County DEM yesterday.  Current model shows that wind speeds will be 30 to 45 mph
With gusts near 65 mph this afternoon

Through late saturday night...
...High surf advisory will expire at 11 pm pdt this evening...

* timing...The high surf advisory will be allowed to expire at 11
Pm pdt this evening as swells continue to subside. The
Combination of strong surface low pressure and high tides may
Result in the potential for coastal flooding after 4-6 pm pdt
Saturday afternoon and continuing into saturday night.

* coastal flooding...Another round of high surf may possibly
Reach the central washington coast later saturday afternoon
Through saturday night. There is a chance that the powerful
Low moving up the washington coast saturday afternoon could
Produce large waves that could reach the central coast. The
Track of the low is critical. If the low is too close to the
Coast then large waves will not be generated. If the low is
Slightly farther offshore there is a chance that large waves
May be produced.

* impacts...High surf can make the coastline and beaches hazardous
To beach goers. High surf can over-top jetties and run great
Distances up beaches very quickly...Sweeping over beach walkers
And cars driven on flat ocean beaches. High surf can also cause
Beach erosion.
