The winds will be picking up tonight at around 11pm and will increase in strength with gusts to 65 miles an hour along beaches and headlands like Cape Foulweather, Cascade Head and Cape Perpetua. The wind warning period is from 11pm this evening through noon Thursday. The weather service says the center of the low pressure coming ashore will pass well to the north of us giving us more wind than rain. Take in any kids toys, lawn chairs and anything else that might blow around like a guided missile and cause property damage or hurt someone. Again, 11pm tonight through noon tomorrow, winds 30 to 40 mph with beach and headland gusts to 65.

Remember, bungee cords are our friends! If you’re putting out trash or recycling, these are the cheapest and easiest way to safely batten down that lid. The collectors also prefer them for quick and easy opening. And your neighbors will appreciate not having your trash blown all over the neighborhood…which can be embarrassing in more ways than one!
