Top Weather Stories for October 12, 2017 Oct 12, 2017

Here is a look at the top weather stories for Thursday October 12th, 2017.


Ophelia is still a Category 1 hurricane and slowly moving to the northeast. Right now Ophelia won’t be impacting land, but we will need to see what this system does as it moves towards Ireland.


The dangerous wildfires are still going strong in California. Weather conditions will continue to favor fire development and fire spreading over the next several days. Unfortunately it looks like no rain is in the forecast over the next several days.


Parts of the Pacific Northwest could see some heavy rain and some heavy snowfall over the next few days. Right now the snowfall should be in the higher elevations of the Northern Rockies and Cascades. The heaviest rain could be setting up into western Oregon where several inches of rainfall will be possible.


Parts of Kansas, Missouri and Iowa are already under a “SLIGHT” risk of severe weather on Saturday.  Large hail and damaging winds will be possible from the Central Plains to the Upper Mississippi Valley for Saturday afternoon and possibly into early Sunday morning.
