Redmond Weather: Wind Warning in Effect, Snow Could Be On the Way

Scattered power outages were reported in Redmond early Monday morning.

A high wind warning for Redmond and many surrounding areas is in effect until noon today, with gusts as high as 60 mph affected in the Puget Sound region.

Puget Sound Energy reported scattered power outages in Redmond early Monday morning, with about 30 customers remaining without power in the Central Kirkland-Houghton-Rose Hill-Bridle Trails-Redmond area as of 8:45 a.m. Lake Washington School District spokewoman Kathryn Reith said some schools on Education Hill lost power earlier this morning but that the electricity had since been restored.

The National Weather Service says the wind is expected to diminish to 15-30 mph with gusts of 40 mph by midday. WSDOT says its crews will be keeping a close eye on the 520 Bridge during the wind storm.

Meanwhile, snow appears likely in parts of Redmond on Monday night. The forecast calls for an 80 percent chance of precipitation with the snow level falling to 200 feet. Accumulation of less than an inch of snow is predicted overnight, with another half-inch possible during the day Tuesday and again Tuesday night.

Dear Friends: Happy Holidays! My brother Bill Diggs lives up there in Redmond, WA. He most recently had a heart surgery. Bill was a member of the Boating Club. He wanted me to come up there. Folks I cannot drive mountains easy and am dealing with a former employer that did not pay me and anothers. I amhomeless as a result of the above. My reason for writing, Bill Diggs is a nice guy. His girl friend, Donna Davis not too long ago died. Bill would not ask for help and the weather is bad. I know from the past his fireplace had no wood and his electricity went out. But I sure would appreciate if you would give him a call and or check in on him. I do not know if he has heat, food or other. He is a veteran and also has Diabetes. Please tell him you got this from his sister that cares a whole lot. Honestly I have such a fear of driving in the mountains even without snow, all I see is the front end of the hood of the car. I break out in a sweat and feel exhausted and faint. My car need the back breaks fixed. Thank You. God Bless in the Apple country and Microsoft center of the World. There is one hey day of a storm coming your way. Amen. My prayers to all who have lost a family member or who are not well. Amen.

Dear Friends: Around the world, let us not forget that candles can be lit and prayers in the Roman Catholic Churches for those who are injured and grieving. Amen. Let us not forget the Holiday of Christmas or Christ Mass is a celebration that is not to be denied or confused with the School shooting. Santa Claus is the celebration that Saint Claus gave to the poor and needy in Germany as he went with a sleigh from mountain home to another with fruit, nuts and candy and small gifts throughout his life. Amen. Bill home is up in the Mountains the city starts with S ashis I have to look it up! God Bless! Please someone or a few check on Bill Diggs. Amen.

Bill Diggs has a brother named Don Diggs! I think he may also be having medical problems and possible surgery in Phoenix, AZ. I tried to get Bill to go there for the holidays and winter but to no avail. He is trying to apparently sell his home up in Washington. Thank you.
