Offshore Disturbance will Ignite Severe Weather this Weekend

There is a strong low pressure system to the west of Canada, characterized by the counterclockwise rotation in place over the northeast Pacific. Farther south, there is a large swath of clouds and likely some precipitation that appears to have lost contact with the system itself and it now heading for the Northwest.

With a strong low pressure pushing east across the northern Pacific, this system being looked at will be pushed south and east, crashing into the Northwest US/Southwest Canada region before firing up intense thunderstorms in the northern Plains this weekend.
