Strong Winds, Heavy Rain, Mountain Snow Take Aim on Northwest and Northern California Into Monday

A strong frontal system will slide into the Northwest and northern California into early Monday with high winds along with more heavy rain and mountain snow.

The winds from this latest storm will be capable of causing power outages and tree damage in some areas. The National Weather Service has issued high wind warnings and wind advisories from western Washington, including Seattle, to parts of California. Coastal portions of Washington and Oregon could see wind gusts up to 70 mph. Peak gusts of 55 to 60 mph are possible for parts of interior western Washington, including the Puget Sound region

After this storm slides east Monday, the West Coast will finally get a break from the recent barrage of stormy weather that they've seen since the first weekend in March, though some lingering showers will still impact the Northwest into Tuesday..

Yowbarb Note: Winter Storm TROY. This weather discussion is mainly about the western states but partly about the midwest, and later the south, as the storm moves across the US.

Early Spring Storm System To Bring Heavy Snowfall, Blizzard Conditions, Strong Winds, and Critical Fire Weather To The West

A strong early season storm system will continue to bring heavy snowfall and blizzard conditions to portions of the Rockies and Intermountain West through Tuesday. This will lead to dangerous travel conditions. Further south, very strong winds and critical fire weather conditions are likely over portions of the Desert Southwest. Wind gusts could exceed 60 mph in a few locations.

...Heavy rain possible for parts of the Lower Mississippi Valley/Tennessee
Valley...

...Heavy snow possible for portions of the Central/Northern Rockies and
High Plains...

A strong, early spring storm system will cross the Rockies and track
through the Great Plains over the next few days. Widespread snow is
expected for much of the Central/Northern Rockies and the surrounding
areas. Periods of heavy snow is forecast primarily Wyoming, but also
southern Montana and northern Colorado through Friday afternoon. 1 to 2
feet of snow will be possible for east/southeast Wyoming. The Beartooths
and Big Horns may have 3-day accumulations exceeding 1 foot. A vast
portion of the Great Basin/Intermountain West have Winter Storm Warning
and Advisories in effect. Blizzard Watches and warnings are in effect for
north-central and eastern Wyoming. Very strong wind gusts will accompany
this system, which will likely lead to blizzard and/or near-blizzard
conditions.

Rain will develop over parts of the Northern Plains and move into the
Upper Mississippi Valley/Upper Great Lakes by Wednesday morning. Over the
Upper Great Lakes, the precipitation will begin as snow but transition to
rain on Wednesday morning. Warm Gulf moisture will advect northward
through Mississippi Valley on Wednesday, reaching the Great Lakes region
by Wednesday night.

Showers and thunderstorms will develop over a large area on Wednesday,
spanning from the Western/Central Gulf Coast to southern Upper
Midwest/Middle Mississippi Valley. Central Plains by Tuesday morning. Some
of these storms may become strong, even severe. The Storm Prediction
Center has highlighted this region as having a slight risk for severe
storms. As the moisture increases and the associated front begins to move
further into Plains, the area of convection will shift into the
Middle/Lower Mississippi Valley Wednesday evening into Thursday. The
slight risk area will be focused over the Coast states/Tennessee Valley on
Thursday. Heavy rain will be likely for southern and central portions of
the U.S. Accumulations of 1 to 4 inches will be common through Friday.

Elsewhere, a lingering boundary and upper-level energy will produce
showers and thunderstorms over parts of Southern Florida through Wednesday
evening.
