INTERIOR...AND I-5 CORRIDOR. WINDS THIS STRONG USUALLY OCCUR IN
FALL AND WINTER. THUS...THIS WIND EVENT COULD CREATE MORE PROBLEMS
DUE TO THE DECIDUOUS TREES STILL HAVING THEIR LEAVES. THIS WILL
MAKE THE BRANCHES MORE PRONE TO SNAPPING IN STRONG WINDS. IN
ADDITION TO THE POSSIBILITY OF DOWNED TREE LIMBS...THE GUSTY WINDS
COULD CAUSE LOCAL POWER OUTAGES.

RAIN WILL BE LOCALLY HEAVY AT TIMES ON SATURDAY. RAINFALL AMOUNTS
OF 1 TO 3 INCHES ARE FORECAST FOR THE COAST AND IN THE
MOUNTAINS...WITH A HALF TO ONE INCH ELSEWHERE...DURING THE 24 HOUR
PERIOD ENDING AT 5 AM PDT SUNDAY. THIS AMOUNT OF RAIN WILL LIKELY
