A new system will enter the Northwest Friday bringing rain and mountain snow to parts of Washington and Oregon. Snow levels in the Cascades will fall to around 3500 feet later Friday and then to around 2000 feet Friday Night. The most significant accumulations will be found in the Cascades of Washington. Gusty westerly winds will continue just east of the divide in western Montana.


The feisty upper-level low that in part brought the locally strong winds to Southern California will pull moisture northward into the Southwest, producing an increasing coverage of rain and snow (in higher elevations) during the afternoon in southeastern Arizona, southern New Mexico, and southwestern Texas. This same upper level feature will eventually head eastward and then northeastward bringing wet weather to much of the middle portion of the country by Sunday.


Gusty winds will be a problem along the Southeast Coast especially eastern Florida where high surf advisories are posted. Large swells are expected and swimmers should expect dangerous rip currents. Small craft should exercise extreme caution and if possible not venture out at all.
