SEATTLE -- A high wind warning is in effect for the coast, and a wind advisory has been issued for inland as strong wind and rains move in Saturday night.
Saturday starts out dry and stays that way through about midday. Then, rain will hit the coast first and push inland, followed by the winds.
Puget Sound will notice the change just around dinner time as rain and wind get going from the south, with snow picking up in the mountains. Expect strongest winds to gust in the overnight hours into early Sunday morning.
Pass travel will be tough over the next 24 hours.
