Next week, another big ocean storm will plow into the western United States. The biggest impact will be felt in California. The storm will produce heavy, windswept rain on the coast and road clogging snow in the mountains. This could be just one of a series of storms that arrives on the West Coast next week. If so, that could spell real trouble in terms of additional flooding and dangerous mudslides. There is a chance that one of these storms will couple with a cold blast drilling southward into the central states. Watch out for a significant winter storm if that happens. We will keep you updated since this will become next week`s big weather headline. Story by AccuWeather.com senior meteorologist John Kocet.

Manitoba Rancher - Thanks for the weather heads-up. Do you suppose there is any chance of rain or snow for western South Dakota? It's so dry it's getting scary here. This beautiful, warm weather is gonna kill us!

I just came from Sheridan, Wyoming today and it really is dry most everywhere. Sheridan had some snow, but didn't take long to get out of it. The grass is turning green north of Sheridan, on the south slopes and in the protected areas!! My gosh, it is only the middle of February! I don't know what to think.

Heavy Rain, Brutal Cold and Snow Next Week



A very volatile weather pattern is expected during the middle and later half of next week. Arctic air will surge southward across the Plains and the East. Meanwhile, a moisture laden storm will move into California Thursday into Friday. This storm will have the potential to produce flooding rains and heavy mountain snow. The storm will move across the Southwest Friday and produce a variety of weather across the Plains. While snow will fall across the central and southern plains, strong thunderstorms will erupt across the central Gulf Coast states. This storm will threaten the Eastern Seaboard early next week.
