The Pac Northwest continues to take a pounding, with the Cascades on a flash flood watch. Looks like they may finally get a small break towards the end of the week. Keep an eye on the Northeast as well. RC
Another strong system moves into the Northwest today with heavy rain and gusty winds. The heaviest rains are expected to be in the Cascades, with flooding and flash flooding possible. Winds between 20-40 miles per hour. Snow levels are expected to remain high (above 8000 feet or higher) today as well. Rain will begin to taper off in the Pacific Northwest tomorrow, with rain and mountain snow continuing in the Northern Rockies.
Most of the action today in the Midwest happens east of the Mississippi River. A few snow showers are possible in the Upper Mississippi Valley this morning. Snow begins to move in on Friday through the weekend from the Northern Plains through the Great Lakes. Highs today from the 30s from the eastern Dakotas to the western Great Lakes.
Rain moves into West Virginia today and spreads across the rest of the region late tonight and tomorrow. Some of the higher elevations of New York and New England may see wintry weather. Rain/snow mix possible over the weekend. After a brief warming late week, much colder temperatures will come in over the weekend. Highs today from the 30s in Northern New England to the 60s in much of West Virginia.
