National Weather Service meteorologists issued a wind advisory late Wednesday for the Puget Sound lowlands, including Issaquah, and said residents can expect gusts up to 55 mph.
Forecasters in Seattle issued the advisory just after 9:30 p.m. Forecasters issue a wind advisory if the possibility exists for sustained winds of 30 to 39 mph and gusts of 45 to 57 mph. The advisory is in effect until 6 a.m. Thursday.
Residents should expect sustained winds up to 20 to 35 mph, and gusts up to 55 mph. The winds could cause difficult driving conditions along Interstate 90, particularly in the North Bend area and eastward toward Snoqualmie Pass.
Conditions could also cause smaller tree branches to drop and power outages.
