High wind warning effective 2 p.m. Thursday

LONG BEACH — The first of the week’s multi-part symphony of storms reached the Pacific Northwest overnight with winds gusting to around 60 mph — fairly moderate for the outer coast.

The top gust of 60.2 mph was recorded at 2:50 a.m. at Megler Mountain above the Astoria-Megler Bridge.

At Radar Ridge above Naselle, the top gust was 55.9 mph at 6 a.m.

At Cape Disappointment, the wind gusted to 56 mph at 2 a.m.

Sustained wind speeds during the night were often in the range of 45 mph at Cape D, but only in the 30s at Megler and Radar Ridge.

Between 6 p.m. Wednesday and 6 a.m. Thursday, 1.23 inches of rain were recorded at the Washington State University station on Pioneer Road in Long Beach.

Another round of high wind is expected to start around 2 p.m. Thursday and last until about midnight. There is a storm warning for offshore waters and a high-surf advisory: avoid beaches, particularly between 4 p.m. Thursday and 3 a.m. Friday.
