A new storm is slamming into northwestern Washington Saturday morning, set to bring more rain and snow to much of the Northwest U.S.. This region has been dealing with a constant train of disturbances, helping to make for a deep snow pack.
On Saturday, snow will continue to fall in the Washington Cascades and in the Bitterroots of Montana during the morning hours.
Much of that snow will dwindle down during the afternoon hours while northern Idaho and much of Montana deals with snow showers throughout the day. A light swath of snow will also expand and overspread into southwestern North Dakota, much of South Dakota, and portions of northern Nebraska. Where the air is warmer, rain showers can be expected along coastal sections of Washington and Oregon and perhaps extreme Northern California. As the storm moves further inland and weakens, much of the snow will dissipate in the Northwest as the moisture moves into the Northern Plains. Therefore, light snow is expected in eastern Wyoming and much of South Dakota, Nebraska, and Iowa Saturday night. By Sunday morning, a few lingering snow showers are possible in Iowa, otherwise it will turn quiet while a new storm system organizes in the South. This storm may even bring a few hours of light snow to cities like Dallas.
