U.S. NATIONAL WEATHER OUTLOOK
TUE FEB 21, 2017
...Rainfall to taper off in northern CA and northern NV this morning… ...Strong winds expected in eastern WY today...
Rain will taper off this morning through this afternoon in the Bay Area and Sacramento Valley of CA and in northern NV. As the rain rates decrease, water levels in local streams and rivers will begin to subside resulting in much improved conditions. A drier weather pattern is expected over the next few days.
Strong winds, with gusts of 50-60 mph are expected this morning through this evening in eastern WY. Wind gusts of up to 70 mph will be possible in exposed terrain. These winds will result in hazardous travel for high profile vehicles, especially along I-25 and I-80.
The combination of locally heavy rainfall and melting snow will result in localized areas of flooding along the I-90 corridor in eastern WA and northern ID. Rainfall totals of 1/2 to 1 inch will lead to localized flooding of small streams/creeks or low-lying or poor draining urban areas.
Elsewhere across the US, generally tranquil conditions are expected.
