A moist, upper level disturbance originating in the Gulf of Alaska will move inland this weekend with precipitation spreading eastward through the Intermountain West and Great Basin. Another trough next week will tap into tropical moisture with widespread wetting rain and mountain snowfall in northern California, the Pacific Northwest, and the Great Basin before moving east through the central Plains. Gusty winds are expected for the Rocky Mountain region and adjacent High Plains in conjunction with a strong cold front this weekend. Locally gusty winds are also anticipated this weekend in southern California and the southwest U.S. In contrast, heavy precipitation and strong winds are forecast early next week for the Gulf Coast and southeast U.S. in association with a tropical storm in the Gulf of Mexico.
