A beast of a bomb cyclone will take shape just off the coast of the northwestern United States and western Canada later this week, and AccuWeather forecasters say it will rival, in some aspects, the intensity of strong hurricanes from the Atlantic this season.

...The powerful storm will bring dangerous and damaging impacts up and down the West Coast, but the precipitation it will deliver to parts of California, Oregon and Washington is greatly needed.

The storm will have some tropical origins.

Satellite imagery indicates that the moisture associated with this storm train will be transported all the way from India and other parts of southeast Asia across the northern Pacific and into the western U.S., according to Senior Meteorologist and Manager of Forecasting Technology Mike Doll. Energy from former Severe Tropical Storm Namtheun, which churned over the western Pacific, will join forces with a non-tropical system sitting over the northern Pacific on Wednesday, according to AccuWeather Meteorologist Randy Adkins.

Rapid strengthening will result. As the storm comes together a few hundred miles off the coasts of Washington and British Columbia, its intensification could easily surpass the criteria for bombogenesis. ...

So long as this rain can be captured in Cali reservoirs or Sierra snowpack, it will be a Godsend for the Western US. Rain usually doesn't start in California until the afternoon of the second Thursday in November, so the early arrival will be welcomed...

Unfortunately it may also take a few Californians,too.

We are very vulnerable to flash floods in the wildfire burn areas now.

I can tell! There is a lot of moisture in this storm.

And it feels very unusual. It's a very humid and warm tropical rain. Reminds me more of a rainy storm in Virginia where it is really humid than it usually does here on the Lost Coast where air is usually colder and dryer. It only feels drier because it's usually cooler here on the coast. It's the same high humidity we usually have but it definitely feels different this time. Much warmer than usual. Especially for this time of year. And the winds have been crazy. Surprised the power didn't go out.

If it puts fires out and fills reservoirs, that would be good. Hope no one is injured.

We may be getting to experience a bit of this as we're driving up to Salinas (near the Southern end of Monterey Bay) on Sunday to visit our oldest granddaughter and her family, including our new GREAT-grandson Noah, who was born a few weeks ago. We'll also have an early birthday party for our GREAT-granddaughter Marina, who'll be two in November. We'll be driving back on Wednesday, the 27th.

Note that they're also predicting rain for SoCal on Monday, perhaps a residual from this same weather event.
