A coast-to-coast storm is predicted to bring threats of heavy rain and mountain snow to parts of the Pacific Northwest and Midwest. Further reports say the Northwest will be the first to experience the severe weather as the storm system will sweep in from the Pacific Ocean.The FOX Forecast Center tracked a powerful coast-to-coast storm system that is predicted to sweep across the U.S. especially parts of the Pacific Northwest and Midwest this week. Further reports say the coast-to-coast storm will bring threats of heavy rain, mountain snow, and even a possible northeast coastal storm in more than 30 U.S. states.
According to Klopping, the coast-to-coast storm is predicted to bring rain, thunderstorms, and mountain snow to the Northwest region first as it will sweep in from the Pacific Ocean. Thereafter, the coast-to-coast storm is predicted to be felt by the Plains and Midwest regions toward the middle and the end of the week. Lastly, the coast-to-coast storm is predicted to be felt last in the Northeast and East Coast regions into the weekend.
Start of Coast-to-Coast Storm
According to Yablonski, in the early morning of October 9, the first round of rain began advancing in the Northwest. However, the bulk of the precipitation is predicted to fall today, October 10, as the coast-to-coast storm will push ashore. Further reports say the mountain snow will be limited to only the highest peaks of the Rocky Mountains and the Cascades ranges in North America.
