The real fun looks like it is coming on Saturday though when we will get a strong front packing both heavy rain and heavy winds.

As you can see below, our friends in coastal Oregon will be getting the worst of it with winds up to 60knots (110kph) but our waters, including Georgia, Johnstone and Juan de Fuca straits will get into the 45-50knot range. Expect ferry cancellations.
