Another round of active weather is headed to the Northwest as a strong front will move onshore Thursday night into Friday, bringing widespread showers & the thunderstorm possibility before the weekend.

Alerts

High surf is anticipated along the Pacific coastline through Thursday, with wave heights between 6-10 ft and gusts up to 35kts. If you are headed to the water, make sure you're at a life-guarded beach or staying out of the water!

Forecast

Lingering shower activity is anticipated through the afternoon and evening on Thursday, with the potential for a little snow mixing in for the higher terrain of the Cascades. Rain & snow showers should diminish as we head into Friday morning with drier air & sunshine returning for the weekend.    As the front pushes inland, more thunderstorms will develop east of the Rocky Mountains, with a marginal risk (level 1 out of 5 on the severe weather scale) for Montana and northern Wyoming on Friday. Severe weather threats include gusty winds and large hail.

Forecast Accumulation

With shower & thunderstorm activity we could see a few pockets of rainfall across western Washington in the range of 2-4", but generally rainfall accumulation will be less than 1" in many locations. Snow accumulation will also be limited to the high peaks and will be in the range of 1-2".   We are covering the unsettled weather in the Northwest as one of our top weather headlines on WeatherNation but also in your West Regional Forecast, :50 after the hour, every hour!
