Part Two - The second storm - even stronger - will form late Wednesday and deepen as it moves north toward Vancouver Is. Coastal wind GUSTS with this system could exceed 100 mph - motorists may want to stay off coastal roads for risk of falling trees/limbs. For the PNW, rain will continue and snow levels should begin to drop some with colder air aloft moving onshore. WINDY.
Third storm cell, is modeled to move onshore around Astoria sometime late Thur or early Fri. VERY WINDY esp for central and southern OR coast.
After a short 2 day break in the action (Jan 23, 24), another round of systems may begin to hit the west coast again in the Jan 25 - 30 time frame. This series could bring the heaviest rain into OR and SW Washington. Watch the storm on Jan 29th, as it could really hammer the PNW. For full story see: http://ovs.com/weather_cafe.htm
