WeatherWatcher: Second Fall Storm

Saturday, September 28, 2013

We have a very significant storm system that will impact our area Saturday - Monday. We are expecting a total rainfall of 2-4 inches during this time period. With the heavy rains we are also expecting some high winds, gusting to 40mph possibly. With trees still holding on to all of their leaves there could be some down tree limbs or trees with this storm.

The storm is originating from the Arctic and Gulf of Alaska -- a very unusual type of storm any time of the year because it is rare that a storm from the arctic carries so much moisture. On Sunday evening we will have a huge surge of rainfall and wind as the remains of Western Pacific Typhoon Pabuk move in, which is currently already merging with this system in the Gulf of Alaska.

Hazards: This is not a super storm, but not a common pattern for rain producers here. Standing water on roadsways and down tree limbs will probably be our biggest threat from this storm. Small stream and urban flooding may be possible as well, especially Sunday evening into Monday morning.

I am working on a seasonal outlook that I will release in early October and I will talk about this unusual early stormy weather we have had this month, as well as what to expect this fall and winter.
