Dangerous Wind Chill in the North

A strong arctic front and associated gusty winds will produce bitter wind chills as cold as -50 or colder from the Upper Midwest to the Northeast. Chilly temperatures and gusty winds extend across the Mid-Atlantic. Lower elevation rain and mountain snow from a weak system in the west will be followed by a stronger system this weekend with heavy mountain snow. Read More >

A Puget Sound Convergence Zone (PSCZ) forms when strong westerly winds flow around the Olympic Peninsula and converge over Puget Sound. It generally forms north of Seattle, and may move southward to as far as Boeing Field or SeaTac Airport. A PSCZ can cause a narrow band of convective precipitation along it, which can include rain showers, thunderstorms, or snowfall. Strong south to southwest winds are to the south of the PSCZ and north to northwest winds to the north.
