Another Big West Coast Storm, Trifecta?
Let’s look back just one week ago. There was an area of low pressure that brought in much needed rain and snow for the West Coast, including the Sierra Nevadas and the Rocky Mountains. That storm evolved into a big severe weather maker in Texas and Oklahoma bringing with it wind, hail, and tornadoes.
Then a similar storm set up again in similar locations on Wednesday. That brought in blizzard conditions for parts of Colorado, Kansas, and Nebraska. As fast as it moved in, it quickly raced to the Midwest spawning more severe weather with numerous wind damage reports, along with tornadoes.
As we look ahead just five days from Thursday, it looks like we could get a trifecta. That’s right, another storm looks to be brewing for the West Coast bringing along more beneficial snow for the Sierra Nevadas, the Rocky Mountains of Colorado and even the potential for severe weather in the Plains.
WeatherNation will track this storm as it evolves over the next several days.
