    A triple weather whammy dubbed “The Big Dark” is hitting the Pacific Northwest.

    The first of three fronts brought some light rain and gusty winds on Tuesday – but a more intense system was expected to hit Wednesday through Thursday morning.

    Heavy rains and wind gusts of up to 50 mph were forecast for the coast and north of Everett in Washington state, said Jay Albrecht, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Seattle.

    In the Seattle region, winds could hit 35 to 40 mph.

    “That’s not all that unusual as we get into fall, but it’s our first windy system of the year and the first one tends to prune the trees of some dead branches and cause some local power outages,” Albrecht told the Seattle Times.


    Between 2 and 8 inches of rain are expected in the region, he added.

    The third strong front due to arrive late Saturday is expected to bring another round of heavy rains and wind similar to what was forecast for Wednesday.
