Coast-to-coast storm to impact 30 states 

This week, a powerful system will impact more than 30 states, bringing impacts from coast to coast

The first up for this coast-to-coast storm is the Pacific Northwest, where the storm system will move ashore in Washington, Oregon and Northern California and bring heavy rain and high-elevation snow.

Heavy rain and the potential for flooding will impact other portions of the country as the storm system moves east throughout the week ahead.

Less than a week until the annular solar eclipse

On Saturday, Oct. 14, the annular solar eclipse will be visible from the Northwest to Texas

An annular eclipse is not a total eclipse, as the Moon doesn’t entirely block the Sun’s light – only 90%. An annular eclipse happens when the Moon is at the farthest point in its orbit of Earth. During the maximum eclipse, known as annularity, the light from the Sun peaks out around the Moon, creating a "ring of fire."
