Wild Wind and Waves

I'm hoping that the wind today is not enough to justify a "barking dog report" and that it's only entertaining.    Our next high tide isn't until 2:43 pm and is a 9.2. 

The current Seattle City Forecast states:

TODAY…BECOMING WINDY MIDDAY. RAIN TURNING TO SHOWERS. HIGHS IN THE UPPER 40S TO MID 50S. SOUTHEAST WIND 10 TO 15 MPH SHIFTING TO SOUTH 20 TO 30 MPH WITH GUSTS TO 45 MPH MIDDAY.

TONIGHT…SHOWERS LIKELY. WINDY THIS EVENING. LOWS IN THE 30S. SOUTH WIND 20 TO 30 MPH WITH GUSTS TO 45 MPH EARLY…EASING TO 10 TO 15 MPH DURING THE EVENING.

The Puget Sound Marine Forecast:

…SMALL CRAFT ADVISORY IN EFFECT…

TODAY…SE WIND 5 TO 15 KT BECOMING SW 20 TO 30 KT THIS AFTERNOON. WIND WAVES 1 OR 2 FT BUILDING TO 3 TO 5 FT. SHOWERS.

TONIGHT…S WIND 20 TO 30 KT. WIND WAVES 3 TO 5 FT. SHOWERS LIKELY.

At last check, the Beach Drive weather station is logging in gusts of 35mph SSW.
