Rain, snow and cold air will return to the Northwestern states into Thanksgiving.

A storm system will dive southward along the West Coast into Tuesday before tracking eastward across the Rockies into Thanksgiving Day.

The strength and track of this storm system will determine which locations receive the heaviest snowfall on the cold side of this system.

The amount of moisture available with this system will be much less than the previous storms this month across the Pacific Northwest. While much of the lower elevations will deal with periods of rain through Tuesday, the threat for flash flooding will be low.

Much of the precipitation along the Interstate 5 corridor from Seattle to Portland, Oregon, will be in the form of rain on Tuesday.

A steady snow will blanket the Oregon Cascades. Significant snowfall will also occur across the Bitterroot Mountains of Idaho and western Montana as well as the Sierra Nevada.

A storm system will dive southward along the West Coast into Tuesday before tracking eastward across the Rockies into Thanksgiving Day.

The strength and track of this storm system will determine which locations will receive the heaviest snowfall on the cold side of this system.

The amount of moisture available with this system will be much less than the previous storms this month across the Pacific Northwest. While much of the lower elevations will deal with periods of rain, the threat for flash flooding will be low.

“Snowflakes will mainly just make an appearance in Seattle and Portland, Oregon, on Monday night,” AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Kristina Pydynowski said. “The low elevations east of the Cascades have the better opportunity to receive accumulating snow on Tuesday into Wednesday, especially in eastern Oregon.”

The arrival of rainfall across the West Coast will bring some relief for firefighters battling wildfires as well as the ongoing drought.

According to Accuweather Senior Meteorologist Matt Rinde, “As one area of low pressure exited the Northwest, another will move in on Wednesday with rain spreading from San Francisco to Seattle.”

Welcome rainfall will fall in cities such as Seattle and Tacoma, Washington; Portland, Salem and Medford, Oregon; and Eureka and Redding, California.

“It is coming. It is a certainty […] more than ten-thousand will die,” says Fox News anchor Shepard Smith

By Shepard Ambellas – INTELLIHUB

PACIFIC NORTHWEST (INTELLIHUB) — “Our operating assumption is that everything west of Interstate 5 will be toast,” a FEMA official told Kathryn Schulz of the New Yorker. “When the next full-margin rupture happens, that region will suffer the worst natural disaster in the history of North America.”, Schulz wrote about an anticipated future mega-quake.

“The worst natural disaster in the history of America is coming […] if I lived right now in the Pacific Northwest I would be considering moving — seriously,” Fox newscaster Shepard Smith warned his audience before going on to explain how a “colossal earthquake and […] tsunami” will likely strike the Pacific Northwest in the not too distant future.

“They [scientists] are all in agreement, it is absolutely coming,” said Smith, “a wall of water […] up to a hundred feet high and up to seven-hundred feet across.

“Houses […] dump-trucks […] schools” will be washed away, “thousands and thousands will not escape.”

“Seattle, Tacoma, Portland, and Olympia, Salem and Eugene wiped out. Altogether about 7 million people and that’s not including tourists.”

“These massive 9.2 earthquakes […] happen at regular intervals […] on average, according to scientists, about every 240 years.”, said Smith.

The segment, which was based on the New Yorker’s write-up, also featured top Astrophysicist Michio Kaku. Shockingly during the broadcast Kaku explained how the Cascadia Fault has already yielded evidence to “scientists” showing how “we could be long overdue for another big one.”

“In the inundation zone we have 70,000 that have almost no clue as to what could happen.”, said Kaku. Unfortunatly Smith already pointed out that the massive tsunami would likely hit about “fifteen minutes” after the earthquake leaving no time for people to flee.

Kaku also offered some advice, saying, “I would think twice” about living in the Pacific Northwest.”

“In the lifetime of some of our viewers they may see Seattle and Portland destroyed,” warned Kaku.

In preparation for such a disaster “Oregon OEM is urging all Oregonians to participate in the Great Oregon ShakeOut earthquake drill on Oct. 15 at 10:15 a.m. It is part of the nation’s largest earthquake drill, and last year more than 390,000 Oregonians participated. Register at http://shakeout.org/oregon/register/ and take steps to make your family safer.” — KTVZ 21

The blast of arctic air spreading across the nation will set the stage for a winter storm to threaten the Northwest later this week.

Frigid air will not only spend this week pouring across the eastern two-thirds of the nation, but will also spill into the Northwest.

What will prove to be the coldest air so far this fall will arrive during the first part of the week, shaving about 10 to 20 degrees off highs from this past weekend.

As the cold air expands southwestward, gusty winds will create even lower AccuWeather.com RealFeel® temperatures Tuesday and Wednesday.

The winds that funnel through the Columbia Gorge will pick up speed, in a fashion similar to what happens between buildings in a city, and produce gusts of 40 to 60 mph near the western mouth of the gorge Tuesday through early Wednesday.

The strongest winds will whip Troutdale, Oregon, with gusts of 40 to 50 mph expected in Portland.

Such winds could cause tree damage and power outages. Dangerous cross-winds will threaten high-profile vehicles, including those traveling Interstate-84 as it snakes along the Columbia River and the portion of I-5 in the Portland, Oregon, area.

As the winds die down, attention will then turn toward a new Pacific storm due to arrive late in the week.

While the storm will be far from the strongest to slam the region, the presence of the cold air will set the stage for snow and ice to fall outside of the mountains and create travel hazards.

Current indications point toward an icy mix developing along the I-5 corridor in northern Oregon and southern Washington Wednesday night through Thursday morning.

Portland and Salem, Oregon, lie in this zone and will have to prepare for treacherous travel to unfold and possible power outages.

Farther to the north, snowflakes may make an appearance around Seattle Thursday morning. A northward shift to the storm, however, could spread the ice threat to Seattle.

A band of accumulating snow is also set to create slippery roads across eastern Oregon and southern Idaho Wednesday night through Friday. This includes The Dalles, Bend and Pendleton, Oregon, and Boise, Idaho.

How much snow whitens southeastern Washington will depend on how far north the storm tracks.

Residents of the Northwest should continue to check back with AccuWeather.com as more precise details on this impending winter storm unfold.

Drier weather will return next weekend as the storm heads eastward to cross the remainder of the country. Through Monday of the following week, the storm may lay a swath of snow from the central Plains to the Northeast.
