Weather Education: The Effects Of A Pacific Northwest Low
2012-10-08 10:05:31

The Pacific Northwest low moves on shore typically in or around the Portland and Seattle area. At location A the type of weather that can be seen is usually thunderstorms and higher elevation rain showers form during the summer. This same area will see coastal rains and heavy mountain snows in the winter. When the system arrives at location B, the Rockies, due to topographic enhancement it can produce heavy rain/t-storms in the summer time, while during the winter this same area can see...
