DAMAGING WINDS, BEACH EROSION AND BLIZZARD CONDITIONS FOR THE MOUNTAINS LATE SUNDAY AND EARLY MONDAY

As promised, a large December storm is barreling into the Northwest right now.   Damaging winds, heavy mountain snow, and coastal flooding will wreak havoc on the region over the next 24 hours.

Breaking this storm down, starting with the wind:

*  COAST/STRAIT:  Southeast winds 25 to 40 with gusts to 60 mph next few hours, then west winds 35-45 with gusts to 70 mph into Monday morning.  The stronger end of that spectrum will be near the coastal headlands along the south Washington coast.
