Wind-driven rain and mountain snow is expected Thursday into Thursday night across the Northwest.
Rainfall amounts of 1-2 inches are likely across western portions of Washington and Oregon, with locally higher amounts in the Foothills of the Cascades and Olympics.
The rain could bring localized street flooding, especially across low-lying and poor drainage areas.
Strong winds will accompany the rain with wind gusts as times reaching 40-45 mph.
These winds are not expected to be as strong as they were a few days ago when a more powerful storm system rolled through, leaving as many as 145,000 electric customers without power.
However, the strong gusts may still lead to spotty wind damage and localized power outages. Overall, the impacts will not be as great compared the last storm. Winds will decrease Thursday evening into Thursday night.
In the higher elevations, several inches of snow will accumulate in the Olympics, Washington Cascades and northern Rockies through Thursday night.
Snow levels will fall through the day, lowering to 4,000 feet across Washington and 5,000 feet over northern Idaho and western Montana.
Snow levels are expected to remain above Snoqualmie Pass along I-90, but will fall to pass level through Stevens Pass along US 2.
On Friday, the system will track across the northern Plains, leaving behind only a few showers and some snowflakes in the mountains.
This pattern of quick-moving systems appears as though it will continue all the way into mid-November before shifting, favoring large, slow-moving storms.
