Friday January 15, Part One
According to Cliff Mass, atmospheric conditions are setting up next week that could result in the 'explosive' development of surface systems as they approach the west coast. True, we cannot forecast each storm track this far out with certainty, but the models have been consistent enough to warrant the 'heads-up' for patrons across the region. There could be three or four storms, which typically create powerful hurricane-force wind fields along the coast and even inland 50 - 60 miles.
Late Sunday night, the first strong storm will impact the PNW with strong winds on the coast and across SW OR.
