WEATHER: ‘Wind Advisory’ Issued; Power Out In Parts Of Burien
The National Weather Service issued a ‘Wind Advisory’ Tuesday night (Jan. 24) for obvious reasons – it’s really windy out there – and Seattle City Light is reporting of at least two outages in Burien (see City Light’s outage map here).
The Weather Peeps originally had the advisory ending at 9 p.m. but have extended it to midnight. They say we can expect gusts up to 45MPH, and to expect some trees and branches to come down, possibly knocking power out.
