While we East Coasters fixate on Atlantic and Caribbean tropical systems folks in the Pacific Northwest are staring at two potentially devastating storms bearing down on them. The second of these is the powerful remnant of a super-typhoon from the western Pacific.

Besides being concerned for our fellow citizens on the Left Coast we should keep in mind these systems are moving east in our direction and will affect our weather next week. Their impacts on the potential severe weather threat next week are still TBD and I expect the long range models to reflect that uncertainty by jumping around a bit over the next 48-72 hours.

So will there be chasing next week or not? Stay tuned!
