NWS--Today's Wind Storm Should Be Taken Seriously:
Silver Lake Weather Saturday at Dawn
In this 8 am Saturday photo taken from the Live Cam at the Silver Lake Institute, the rain, though lite is self-evident, the Flag flies robustly from the steady wind and the wakes are higher than usual with an occasional white water burst crashing down. All this five hours before the official wind storm event.

Temperature at 7:25 am is 46°; winds are averaging 7.9 mph with a wind gust from the south of 30.5 mph; precipitation since midnight: 0.06 of an inch; humidity at 100%.

Some minor changes in the overall forecast from the National Weather Service since last night's latest update: the length of the event is back down to 11 pm Saturday with the start time remaining at 1 pm despite increasing wind activity at dawn and before.

The National Weather Service has issued the following IMPACT statement:

"Damaging winds will blow down numerous trees and power lines. Widespread power outages are expected. Some property damage likely. Travel will be difficult, especially for high profile vehicles."

NWS has issued the following PRECAUTIONARY / PRE-PAREDNESS ACTIONS statement:
"People should avoid being outside in forested areas and around trees and branches. If possible, remain in the lower levels of your home during the windstorm, and avoid windows. Use caution if you must drive."
