Wet Weather for the Western U.S.

A series of storms have lined up in the Pacific, all heading towards the Western U.S. coast. Heavy winds and rains are expected over the next week as these systems move inland. Up to a foot of precipitation is expected in Northern California. The three systems are shown here by combining water vapor imagery from the GOES-West and MTSAT satellites. Areas of high moisture content are colored white and green, areas of dry area are clear (showing the underlying map).
