Next! Another windy and wet day.

I’m a little iffy on whether or not this should be an official barking dog report. Yesterday, as my hubby was teasing me for predicting we could flood with the Barking Dog post until late afternoon when the winds seem to suddenly pick up and voila, we had some water splashing over the seawall. Nothing was damaged at our home except for a large flower pot that was too close to the seawall.

Tomorrow looks like we could potentially have some more water slurping over with the higher tides and extended periods of strong winds that have been forecasted.

Tomorrow’s high tides are 12.14 feet at 7:05 am and 11.84 feet at 5:47 pm. It’s possible we could see tides slightly higher. During yesterday’s storm, a coastal flooding warning was issued increasing the tide by 1.1 feet.

Check out Windalerts forecast (as of 2:48 pm 11/5/2021). I’m including the “free version” and the “plus” version (typically we just have the free version). The forecast show similar stories as far as constant strong winds… but the “plus” version on the bottom is showing much stronger winds with gusts in the upper 40’s around 7am vs gusts around 26mph on the free version. I guess we’ll see which one is more accurate tomorrow morning!

Here is the Puget Sound Marine Forecast. Note: 30 knots is about 35 mph.
