Hello and happy Tuesday everyone, hope all is well! A strong Pacific storm is barreling into the western half of the country with wicked winds, severe storms and even high elevation snow. This was the scene from Donner Pass…
Here’s a shot from Crater Lake, OR
“Good Snowy Morning from Crater Lake National Park! We had a good 4 inches of snow last night and are anticipating a little more today. The roads are icy and wet so if you are coming up please drive slowly and with caution.-sc“
Impressive 24 Hour Temp Change
Look at 24 hour temperature change associated with this storm system out west. After record high temps yesterday, temps are a good 20 to 30 degrees cooler than they were yesterday!
Severe Weather out West
On the leading edge of this cooler push of air, thunderstorms erupted with the severe criteria met (1″ in diameter) from northern California to western Montana. In fact some of the hail out of Montana was as big as baseballs!
Nice work Roger Hill! Roger took this picture from a supercell thunderstorm in Montana on Monday. This picture has already been shared several hundred times by people on Facebook, see more HERE:
Severe Threat Today
Parts of Montana are still under the gun today with the main threat being hail and high winds. A stalled frontal boundary in the Southeast will kick out strong to severe thunderstorms through the afternoon/evening… the main threat here will be hail and high winds.
Thanks for checking in and have a great week ahead!
