The Blustery Winds today will be Howling for the Seahawks

Just checking out the various forecasts for our area and hoping that a "tweet" from West Seattle Blog this morning regarding power flickering is just a fluke…or there's going to be some unhappy Seattle-ites with the Seahawks game starting in just a couple hours.

Let's start with the tides for today:

  • 8:26 a.m. is low tide of 8:69

  • 4:29 a.m. on Jan 17 is a high tide of 1.23

Note:  We have some very high tides this week…next Saturday we will be at 13.04 at 6:54 a.m.

The National Weather Service forecast for our area:
