We just experienced a VERY strong and windy cold front up here in NW Washington and the winds in western Whatcom County have been a steady 40-50 mph (gusts to near 70 mph) out of the Northwest......directly off the waters of the Georgia Strait and originating from the Gulf of Alaska.
This front did clear our skies though and brought some snowfall to the eastern suburbs of Seattle and along the foothills of the Cascades.

It appears to have its sights set on the Northern Plains and down into Colorado next........so if anyone is living between Denver and Bismarck, ND......get ready to get blasted with some snow, FRIGID air and STRONG winds between Tuesday and Wednesday!
Just a FYI.

I am in North Idaho and we are suppose to get high winds tonight and it is suppose to be around zero tomorrow night, the coldest so far this winter. I hope that zero includes the wind chill factor, otherwise it could be very very cold here.

No offense.......but, I believe the LOW of zero is without winds and your wind chills could be more like -30 degrees.
But, hey......that's winter in ND!

EDIT..........excuse me, you said north IDAHO.......ok. Cold and windy there today, but not -30 wind chills.

Yes, your nasty storm is headed this way (Denver). Thanks a lot It's supposed to be in the 50s today and then tomorrow, a high of 18 and low in the single digits with 1-3" of snow. I'm counting the days 'til Spring!

Oh no!!! I don't know if it's heading for southeastern So. Dak., but our winds are blowing hard today, too. It's warmed up here and our temp is 23, but with windchill, it feels like 8. That will be our warmest for several days. We're getting ready for a really cold spell and it doesn't look like we'll come out of it anytime soon. I'm not sure if it's the Artic blast or if it's coming from the west. Not sure what I dislike the most~the weather that hits us from Canada or the weather that hits us from the West.

We haven't had any "arctic air" in Denver yet this season. When they call it "arctic", it's usually a high in the single digits and low in the negative single digits - great for walking a small dog whose paws freeze and hurt about a minute after going outside Luckily that only lasts a day or two when it happens, but it sure is time to "hunker down" and avoid the outdoors!

It certainly showed it's presense here today. 40+mph winds. Temp dropped from almost 50 to around 25 in about 45 minutes.

Started blowing and shortly after, started showing those little white things. Snow. hahaha

It's ok. I started a fire in the fire place. Moved in about 6 arm loads of wood. Let it blow, I'm set.
