Moderate to heavy snow is likely Saturday for portions of the Pacific Northwest. Severe thunderstorms are possible for portions of the Southern Plains and Gulf Coast.
Pacific Northwest: A low pressure disturbance will continue further inland in the Pacific Northwest with additional rain and show showers through the region. Moderate to heavy snow accumulations will be possible through the mountains, with heaviest accumulations in areas of highest elevation. Accumulations will range between 4-8 inches, with localized heavier accumulations of 10-15 inches possible.
Southern Plains/Gulf Coast: As the low through the Texas Hill Country continues to advance to the east on Saturday, chances for additional showers and thunderstorms to develop from Central Texas to Mississippi will be possible during the day and into the afternoon hours. At this time, highest chances for severe weather remains along the Texas/Louisiana Gulf Coast and into the Western and North Central Gulf of Mexico. Storms produced could have the potential to develop heavy rain, damaging winds, large hail and even a few isolated tornadoes. Localized rainfall accumulations of 2+ inches could occur.
