National Weather Service issued a High Wind Warning for the whole region from Lewis County north along the I-5 corridor through Seattle from mid-day to about 9 p.m. tonight, as a storm is bringing 25-40 mph winds, gusting to 60 or 65 miles per hour. Moderately heavy snow accumulation is also forecast for the Cascade Mountains.
