SEATTLE is set to be hit by a cyclone that will rival the intensity of strong hurricanes and will bring dangerous and damaging impacts up and down the West Coast.
The moisture associated with the storm will come all the way from India and other parts of southeast Asia according to senior meteorologist and manager of forecasting technology, Mike Doll.
Snow is expected to fall at various elevations over the course of several days.
Farther south, eight feet of snow is predicted over the highest ridges and peaks in the central and northern Sierra Nevada.
