The National Weather Service office in Seattle has issued a wind advisory for Saturday for much of Western Washington.
The advisory includes the Bainbridge Island-Seattle-Bremerton area.
The advisory will remain in effect from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday.
Southerly winds of 20 to 35 mph — with gusts up to 40 to 55 mph — are forecast.
The National Weather Service said winds will increase late Saturday morning and peak during the afternoon hours. Winds will diminish Saturday evening.
Officials said the strong winds will make driving difficult for high-profile vehicles, and weak trees or small tree branches may be blown down and result in local power outages.
