Winds are expected to pick up around midnight tonight, then the strongest winds are predicted to hit between 2 am and noon tomorrow. Sustained winds of 25 to 35 miles an hour are expected, with gusts of up to 70 miles an hour on the headlands. There’s also a Winter Storm Warning up for the Columbia River Gorge, along with South Washington and North Oregon Cascades. That starts at 7 pm tonight and runs until tomorrow night.
