Sunday, December 16, 2012
Rain and wind made Sunday a nasty day, and more powerful winds were expected to blow through early this morning.
“When you wake up in the morning, the highest winds, the damaging winds, should be over,” said Colby Neuman, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Portland. He said those top winds probably would rush through about 4 a.m.
The weather service on Sunday night called for southwest winds of about 33 mph, with gusts as high as 60 mph.
Earlier Sunday, a high wind warning was issued for Clark County.
The weather service said the top gust on Sunday at Pearson Field in Vancouver reached 30 mph at 7:16 p.m.
Clark Public Utilities at 9:45 p.m. reported only one outage, affecting three customers in Battle Ground.
The weather service said more than a half-inch of rain fell at Pearson Field on Sunday.
Heavy snow is predicted in the Cascades.
